An angle and a positive real number define a unique point

in the real plane . Here, is the distance between the point and the zero point and means the intersecting point of the ray through with the unit circle. Every point has a unique representation with and with an angle , which has to be chosen accordingly (the zero point is represented by and an arbitrary angle). The components are called the polar coordinates of .
