Resumen: Irreducible complex plane curve germs with the same characteristic exponents form an equisingularity class. In this paper we determine the Zariski invariants that characterize the general polar of a general member of such an equisingularity class. More precisely, we will describe explicitly the characteristic exponents of the irreducible components of the polar and their mutual intersection multiplicities, allowing us in particular to describe completely the content of each of Merle’s packages of the polar.
