1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
part 1) draw 3(R-hat) + 3(theta-hat) + 3(phi-hat)
part 2) draw 3(r-hat) + 3(theta-hat) + 3(z-hat)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
aren't these the same thing? just 3 in each of the x, y, and z directions in cartesian coordinates.

Absolutely not. Look up the wiki pages on spherical and cylindrical coordinates.
