Plot polar coordinates



The polar function accepts polar coordinates, plots them in a Cartesian plane, and draws the polar grid on the plane.

polar(theta,rho) creates a polar coordinate plot of the angle theta versus the radius rho. theta is the angle from the x-axis to the radius vector specified in radians; rho is the length of the radius vector specified in dataspace units.

polar(theta,rho,LineSpec) LineSpec specifies the line type, plot symbol, and color for the lines drawn in the polar plot.
