In finding the area in Polar Coordinates, how do you find the bounds of equations? For example r=3+2cos(theta) the bounds are apparently 0<theta<2pi but how do you figure that out?
so its centered at 3
so integrate (1/2)(r^2) d(theta) from theta1 to theta 2
theta 1 and theta 2are d values which can be obtained by solving r=3+2cos(theta)
