9. 4 The Gradient in Polar Coordinates and other Orthogonal Coordinate Systems. Suppose we have a function given to us as f(x, y) in two dimensions or as g(x, y, z) in three dimensions. Suppose however, we are given f as a function of r and, that is, in polar coordinates, (or g in spherical coordinates, as a function of, , and ).coordinate system will be introduced and explained. We will be mainly interested to nd out general expressions for the gradient, the divergence and the curl of scalar and vector elds. Speci c applications to the widely used cylindrical and spherical systems will conclude this lecture. 1 The concept of orthogonal curvilinear coordinates gradient in spherical coordinate system

May 16, 2015 Topic: In this video i will give a short introduction to calculating gradient, divergence and curl in different coordinate Systems. How can the answer be improved? gradient in spherical coordinate system The choice of a speci c coordinate system is decided by the geometry of the given problem. There are 8 orthogonal coordinate systems, namely 1. Cartesian Coordinate System 2. Cylindrical Coordinate System 3. Spherical Coordinate System 4. Parabolic Cylindrical Coordinate System 5. Conical Coordinate System 6. Prolate Spheroidal Coordinate System 7.
