Cartesian to Spherical Coordinates – Formulas and Examples

Cartesian to Spherical Coordinates – Formulas and Examples

Spherical coordinates are written in the form (ρ, θ, φ), where, ρ represents the distance from the origin to the point, θ represents the angle with respect to the x-axis in the xy plane and φ represents the angle formed with respect to the z-axis. Spherical...

Spherical to Cartesian coordinates – Formulas and Examples

Spherical coordinates have the form (ρ, θ, φ), where, ρ is the distance from the origin to the point, θ is the angle in the xy plane with respect to the x-axis and φ is the angle with respect to the z-axis. These coordinates can be transformed to Cartesian coordinates...

A coordinate system is defined as a way to define and locate a point in space. The most widely used three-dimensional coordinate system is the Cartesian system, which has the form (x, y, z). However, there are alternative systems that may be more convenient depending...

Coordinate systems can be defined as ways of locating points in space. In three-dimensional space, the Cartesian coordinate system has the form (x, y, z). However, this system is not always the most convenient, so we have alternative coordinate systems. One of these...
