## Main Question or Discussion Point

Okay, so I just found out about the Rayleigh distribution being the radial distribution of a point composed of normal distributed cartesian components. And this is because of the area element, right?

But how then can the joint density of the cartesian component's distributions equal that of the angular and radial distributions? Both should give the density of such a point?
