# Area of parametric equations - Parametric Equations and Polar Coordinates

### Area of parametric equations

In this section, we will learn find the area under the curve of parametric equations. This still involves integration, but the integrand looks changed. The integrand is now the product between the second function and the derivative of the first function. We will examine the different types of parametric equations with a given range, and learn how to find the area of each one.
