Degrees to Radians – Formulas and Examples

Degrees to Radians – Formulas and Examples

Degrees and radians are the two most common types of units for measuring angles. Each of these units is suitable in different situations. Degrees are used in geometry as they allow us to measure an angle and indicate a direction. However, technically speaking, angles...

Radians to Degrees – Formulas and Examples

Radians and degrees are types of units for measuring angles. There are other types of units, but radians and degrees are the most used. Each of these units has its respective application. Radians are mainly used in differential and integral calculus. On the other...

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...

Spherical Coordinates – Formulas and Diagrams

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...
