Looking for the equation in spherical coordinates and the spherical equation with the unit vectors:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Fr+ FӨr+ FØӨ= constantØ

The equation is:

x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = r^2

is the equation for a sphere radius = r centered at the origin. What is the cartesian equation?

x*+ y*x+ z*y= r ?z

What is the sphere in spherical coordianates?

r*cosӨ*sinØ*+ r*sinӨ*sinØ /(r*sin)*r+ r*cosØ/r*Ө= Constant ?Ø

or

r*cosӨ*sinØ*+ sinӨ*r+ cosØ*Ө=Constant ?Ø
