Homework Help: Scalar factors of parabolic cylindrical coords

  1. Nov 10, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have a question to find Scalar factors of parabolic cylindrical coords and element dV with provided tranformation equations. I know the values for both of them and that the product of the scalar factors is the dV, but how do i derive those scalar factors? I dont even know where to start, i know i can use them to find Laplacian, curl and divergence but how do i find those values? how do i show my work? Please help Thank You Luke
