 P: 2 Is it possible to do vector operations in polar coordinates?
 P: 290 Of course. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/VectorDerivative.html Edit: Now that I look at what that page has, these might be more useful. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Cylindr...ordinates.html http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PolarCoordinates.html --J
As you may probably have seen from the links provided,YES...Since we're talking about curvilinear coordinates,the calculations are more difficult than the ones with the old $(\vec{i},\vec{j})$
