(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

cylindrical coordinates: r=2cscƟ, give both rectangular and spherical cordinates

2. Relevant equations

I know this:

From rectangular to cylinder

z=z r^{2}=x^{2}+y^{2}tanƟ=y/x

From Cyl to rectangle

x=cosƟ y=sinƟ z=z

From cyl to spherical

Ɵ=Ɵ ρ^{2}=x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}ɸ=sin^{-1}r/ρ

From Spherical to cylindrical

Ɵ=Ɵ r=ρsinɸ z=ρcosɸ

3. The attempt at a solution

so far what I have is

r=2/sinƟ

can anyone please help me, I got stuck
