Finding Area of a Circle using Calculus_Part II: Using Polar Coordinates

We use Calculus once again to develop the equation for the area of a circle, however, in this second of our two-part video series, we present a solution using Polar coordinates — a system far more robust when dealing with circular shapes. We especially note the great economy of computational time and effort afforded us over the solution demonstrated in Part I which considered the analysis in Cartesian (i.e. Rectangular) coordinates
