Hi i have a question that how to convert the co-ordinates according to following statement?
Its no difficult to solve the simple conversion but the bold one are confusing me.
Transform it into cylindrical co-ordinate system at P (ρ=4, ϕ=120o ,z=2)
Transform it into cylindrical co-ordinate system at P(x=3, y=4, z=-1)
2. The attempt at a solution
Equations for converting Cartesian to cylindrical coordinates:
r= [x2 + y21/2
ϕ= tan-1= y/x
by putting values
