1. IM very confused about the meaning of these cylindrical vectors for Cartesian vectors if i say A = 1ax + 2ay + 3az I know i mean a vector with a magntiude of 1 in the x direction 2 in the y direction and 3 in the z direction and i make a line from the origin to point (1,2,3). Now for cylindrical I cannot think the same way for a point i can make a point easily it seems to have a similar meaning (r is the magntiude from origin to the point, phi being the angle from x and z being the regular z) now for a vector example a = 1 ap + 2 aphi + 3 az Im very confused how do i draw this vector and what does it mean??? the magntiude along p is 1 so the angle is 2? from the x axis????? i dont think this is correct.. I cant understand this help!!!
