Let $$X,Y\sim N(0,1)$$. Are $$X^2 +Y^2$$ and $$X/Y$$ independent?

I found that $$X^2 + Y^2$$ is $$\mathrm{Exp}(1/2)$$ but I am having trouble finding the distribution of $$X/Y$$—it seems like it is impossible to integrate.

Let $X = R \cos \Theta$, $Y = R \sin \Theta$ for random variables $(R, \Theta)$ supported on $\mathbb{R}_+ \times [0,2\pi)$. It's easy to see that this covers the entire support of $(X,Y)$.
The determinant of the Jacobian for $(x,y) \mapsto (r\cos \theta, r\sin \theta)$is $r$.
$$f_{R\Theta}(r,\theta) = r \frac{1}{2 \pi} \exp(- r^2 \cos^2 \theta - r^2 \sin \theta) 1_{\{ r \ge 0\}} 1_{\{\theta \in [0,2\pi)\}}$$ $$~~~~~~~~~~~= \frac{r}{2 \pi} \exp(-r^2) 1_{\{ r \ge 0\}} 1_{\{\theta \in [0,2\pi)\}} = f_R(r) f_\Theta(\theta)$$
Since $R$ and $\Theta$ are independent, so are any deterministic functions of them. Consequently, $R^2$ and $\tan \Theta$ are independent.
