# Spherical Polar co-ordinates

This article is about Spherical Polar co-ordinates and is aimed for First year physics students and also for those appearing for exams like JAM/GATE etc.

The spherical polar coordinates represent the coordinates of points on the surface of a sphere in a co-variant form. The coordinates of the point P in this system is represented by the radial vector r which is the distance from the origin to the point, the polar or
