The image below represents polar to cartesian.

To convert polar to cartesian, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are the **Value of r** and **Value of θ.**

The formula for converting polar to cartesian (x, y):

x = rcosθ

y = rsinθ

Let’s solve an example;

Find the conversion of polar to cartesian when the value of r is 4 and value of θ is 8.

This implies that;

Value of r = 4

Value of θ = 8

Finding x:

x = 4 x cos(8°)

x = 4 x 0.99

x = 3.96

Therefore, **x **is **3.96.**

Finding y:

y = 4 x sin(8°)

y = 4 x 0.139

y = 0.55

Therefore, **y **is **0.55.**

Therefore, the **Cartesian coordinates of the polar coordinates (4∠8°)** is **(3.96, 0.55).**
