Hi;

Theta is an independent variable and r is the dependent one.

The spiral has the property that the angle φ between the tangent and radial line at the point (r, \theta) is constant. This property can be expressed in differential geometric terms as


arc cos[(r(θ), r'(θ)/||r(θ)||*||r'(θ)]=arctan(1/b)=⏀

The way it is done is, you take values for θ and calculate the value of r you get.

is there any particular formula?
without using any formula how to find θ
as radius varies  θ also varies right?

θ is just a variable, similar to x in y=x^2.

in polar coordinates, the logarithmic spiral is given by r=ae^(bθ)
how find θ and how to draw logarithmic spiral
