Iam having trouble understanding how one arrives at the transformation matrix for spherical to rectangular coordinates.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand till getting the (x,y,z) from (r,th

ie.,

z = rcos@

y = rsin@sin#

x = rsin@cos#

Note:

@ - theta (vertical angle)

# - phi (horizontal angle)

Please show me how to get the transformation matrix. Thanks in advance!
