# Calculating list of areas between the curves in an intersection region

I have 2 tables;

table 1:

ctr = {(Exp[Pi*0.5] + 1)/2, 0};
pp = PolarPlot[
Evaluate@Table[Exp[(t + 2*Pi*i/120)*0.5], {i, 1, 120}], {t, -Pi,
Pi}, RegionFunction -> (Norm[{#, #2} - ctr] <= radius &)]
Total[ArcLength /@ Cases[pp, _Line, All]] and table 2:

ctr = {(Exp[Pi*0.5] - 1)/2, 0};
pp2 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate[Table[{t, t (Tan[2 j Pi / 120])}, {j, 1, 60}]], {t, -5, 5},
RegionFunction -> (Norm[{#, #2} - ctr] <= radius &),
PlotRange -> All]
Total[ArcLength /@ Cases[pp2, _Line, All]] I want to calculate each area between the curves and show them in histogram so I can evaluate maximum and minimum gaps between the tables. I illustrated what I want as below: can you show me how?

You could define a ParametricRegion , examplary between curves #10 and #11

reg10 = ParametricRegion[{{Cos[t], Sin[t]} Exp[(t + 2*Pi*ii/120)/2], (Sqrt[#.#] < radius) &[{Cos[t],Sin[t]} Exp[(t + 2*Pi*ii/120)/2] - ctr]}
, {{t, -Pi, Pi}, {ii, 10, 11}}]
DiscretizeRegion[reg10] Area[DiscretizeRegion[reg10]]
(*0.0592725*)


Knowing the plot pp a very fast straightforward solution is possible: First get the Line-objects from the plot

linien = Cases[pp, _Line , Infinity];


Two neighboring lines form a polygon from which the area can be calculated

areas=Table[ Area@Polygon[Join[linien[[i]][], Reverse[linien[[i + 1]][]]]], {i,1, Length[linien] - 1}]

That's it! Hope it helps.

• Thank you very much! However, how could I store each of the ares into a table so I can show the histogram could you help me with that as well? Feb 23, 2019 at 15:30
• Put it in a Table[...,{i,1,119}] Feb 23, 2019 at 17:57
• @ Alper91 Look at the edit of my answer, I added a solution which only needs to know pp Feb 23, 2019 at 19:44
• Thanks. It worked easily. Feb 24, 2019 at 7:29
