in this problem i can solve v = ω x r = <0, -ωrsinψ, 0> in cartesian coordinates

but i don't understand A in sphericle coordinates why?

(inside) A = ⅓μ0Rσ(ω x r) = ⅓μ0Rσωrsin(θ) θ^

how to convert coordinate ?

Look at figure 5.46. Unit vector ##\hat \phi## is in the xy-plane, perpendicular to the plane defined by ##\vec {r}'## and the z-axis in the direction of increasing ##\phi##. Make a drawing of it in the xy plane and find its x and y components. Hint: It has a positive y-component and a negative x-component.
