Transform vectors from cartesian to cylindrical coordinates?
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
How do I transform a vector from cartesian to cylindrical coordinates?
v=(x,y,z) = (λx,λy,0) where lambda is a constant.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I tried v = (r,θ,z) = (λrCosθ, λrSinθ, 0) but my teacher said it wasn't right.
