How do you convert this to Spherical Components?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Spherical Convention = (radial, azimuthal, polar)

##\vec r = |\vec r| * \cos{(\theta)} * \sin{(\phi)} * \hat x +|\vec r| * \sin{(\theta)} * \sin{(\phi)} * \hat y +|\vec r| * \cos{(\phi)} * \hat z##

Is this correct?

##\vec r =\sqrt{(x^2 + y^2 + z^2)} * \hat r + \arctan{(\frac{y}{x})} * \hat \theta + \arccos{(\frac{z}{r})} * \hat \phi##
