Module 1.3 Cylindrical Coordinate System

Cylinder of constant r

Half-plane of constant φ

Plane of constant z




Radial distance r Azimuthal angle φ    deg rad
Coordinate z   
Cartesian Coordinates (x, y, z) = (m, m, m)

Cylindrical Coordinates (r, φ, z) = (m, deg, m)

Spherical Coordinates (R, θ, φ) = (m, deg, deg)
