Parameter:This method accepts the following parameters.

• x :This parameter is the number to find polar coordinates of.

Returns:This method returns a tuple value that represent the polar coordinates.

Below examples illustrate the use of above function:

Example #1 :

## Python3

 `# Python code to implement``# the polar()function``       ` `# importing "cmath"``# for mathematical operations  ``import` `cmath ``   ` `# using cmath.polar() method ``val ``=` `cmath.polar(``1``) ``print``(val)`

Output:

`(1.0, 0.0)`

Example 2:

## Python3

 `# Python code to implement``# the polar()function``       ` `# importing "cmath"``# for mathematical operations  ``import` `cmath ``   ` `# using cmath.polar() method ``val ``=` `cmath.polar(``2` `+` `4j``)``print``(val)`

Output:

`(4.47213595499958, 1.1071487177940904)`
