2. Choice is based on symmetry of problem To understand the Electromagnetics, we must know basic vector algebra and coordinate systems. So let us start the coordinate systems. COORDINATE SYSTEMS • RECTANGULAR or Cartesian • CYLINDRICAL • SPHERICAL Examples: Sheets - RECTANGULAR Wires/Cables - CYLINDRICAL Spheres - SPHERICAL

4. Orthogonal Coordinate Systems: 1. Cartesian Coordinates z P(x,y,z) Or y Rectangular Coordinates x P (x, y, z) z z P(r, Φ, z) 2. Cylindrical Coordinates P (r, Φ, z) y r x Φ X=r cos Φ, Y=r sin Φ, Z=z z 3. Spherical Coordinates P(r, θ, Φ) θ r P (r, θ, Φ) X=r sin θ cos Φ, Y=r sin θ sin Φ, Z=z cos θ y x Φ
