• Coordinate Systems

• COORDINATE SYSTEMS

RECTANGULAR or Cartesian

CYLINDRICAL

SPHERICAL

Choice is based on symmetry of problem

Examples:

Sheets - RECTANGULAR

Wires/Cables - CYLINDRICAL

Spheres - SPHERICAL

To understand the Electromagnetics, we must know basic vector algebra and

coordinate systems. So let us start the coordinate systems.

• Cartesian coordinate system

dx, dy, dz are infinitesimal displacements along X,Y,Z.

Volume element is given by

dv = dx dy dz

Area element is

da = dx dy or dy dz or dxdz

Line element is

dx or dy or dz

Ex: Show that volume of a cube of edge a is a3.
