Cardioid Calculator

How does the Cardioid Calculator work?
Shows you the area, arc length, polar equation of the horizontal cardioid, and the polar equation of the vertical cardioid

What formulas are used for the Cardioid Calculator?
A = 6πa2
L = 16a
r = a(1 ± cos(θ))
r = a(1 ± sin(θ))

What 4 concepts are covered in the Cardioid Calculator?

Number of square units covering the shape

a heart-shaped curve. a plane curve traced by a point on the perimeter of a circle that is rolling around a fixed circle of the same radius.

polar equation
any equation that describes a relation between r and θ
