In particular, the moving point P is the parameter, the fixed point F is the focus, and the fixed line D is the directrix. The horizontal distance d from the fixed line D to the intersection point I is related to the distance r from the fixed point I by r ¼ ed, where e is a constant called the eccentricity. 7 Polar coordinates. 48 MATH REFRESHER FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS length from the focus to the directrix is r LDF ¼ d þ r cos v ¼ (1 þ e cos v) e (3:2:2) The angle v between the horizontal axis and the line connecting points F and I is called the true anomaly.
