Hi, The iterator of Polar plot determines the angle while the function determines the radius. So if you want to "shift" in angle, all you need is to start the angle from a different initial value , i.e. PolarPlot[Exp[0.2 (t-t0)],{t,t0,t1}] where t0 is the initial value, and t1 is the final value for the angles. Note that t-t0 makes your function to compute the values for 0<=t<=t2-t1 (which I assume that you wanted this behavior) yehuda On 6/15/05, paul at selfreferral.com <paul at selfreferral.com> wrote: > Hi All, > > Would appreciate some help with this.
