shell balance in spherical coordinates
I want to derive equation of continuity in spherical coordiantes based on shell balance,can anybody tell me where the hell this sin(theta) comes from?
i don't want to transform from cartesian,

It comes from the fact that one is projecting onto the x,y-plane from some angle (zenith angle) from the z-axis, as opposed to the azimuthal angle, which sweeps around the x,y plane.
This is even better - http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/sphc.html
