(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Transform the equation from cartesians coordinates to spherical coordinates.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\int_\infty\int_\infty\int_\infty

exp\left\{

\frac{-\left| \vec{x'}-\vec{x}_0 \right|^2}{2 \sigma}

\right\}

\frac{\left( \vec{x} - \vec{x'} \right)}{\left| \vec{x} - \vec{x'} \right|^{3}} d^3x'

[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm confused by the [tex]\vec{x}[/tex], [tex]\vec{x'}[/tex] and [tex]\vec{x}_0[/tex]... I know it can be done: nothing depends on the angle here, so I should just get something depending on [tex]\vec{r}[/tex].

Thank you for any hints...
