[itex] x = \rho \cos \varphi [/itex]

[itex]y = \rho \sin \varphi [/itex]

[itex] \rho = \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}[/itex] and

[itex] \varphi = \begin{cases} 0 & \mbox{if } x = 0 \mbox{ and } y = 0\\ \arcsin(\frac{y}{\rho}) & \mbox{if } x \geq 0 \\ -\arcsin(\frac{y}{\rho}) + \pi & \mbox{if } x < 0\\ \end{cases}

[/itex]

Substitute ##x=r\cos\theta,\, y=r\sin\theta## in the equation and solve it for ##r##.I don't understand what r=f(theta,z) means and how to write my answer in that form

##\theta## is given by \theta, not \phi.in this case theta is the angle [itex]\phi [/phi] in the equations above
