How it works ?
You can use this applet to help you better visualize plotting points in 3-space on a SPHERE. (Hence, the name spherical coordinates).
Spherical coordinates are expressed in the form (Θ,ρ,Φ).
For Φ and Θ, this applet uses units of RADIANS.
The ORANGE POINT = THE POINT YOU’RE PLOTTING.
How can we describe what each of the 3 coordinates tells us? (Explain as best you can in your own words).
