Conversion between 3D Coordinate SystemsConversion from cartesian to cylinrical coordinates: Cartesian [x, y, z] Cylindrical [ρ, φ, z']
Conversion from cylindrical to cartesian coordinates: Cylindrical [ρ, φ, z'] Cartesian [x, y, z] y = ρsin φ z = z' Conversion from spherical to cartesian coordinates: Spherical [r, θ, φ] Cartesian [x, y, z] y = rsin θsin φ z = rcos θ Conversion from cartesian to spherical coordinates: Cartesian [x, y, z] Spherical [r, θ, φ] Conversion from spherical to cylindrical coordinates: Spherical [r, θ, φ] Cylindrical [ρ, φ', z'] φ' = φ z' = rcos θ Conversion from cylindrical to spherical coordinates: Cylindrical [ρ, φ, z] Spherical [r, θ, φ'] θ = arctan(ρ/z) φ' = φ
