Relating Unit Vectors to a Jacobian Matrix
In this post, I relate coefficients of unit vectors to derivatives and to a Jacobian matrix that was used in a previous post. Unit Vectors Three unit vectors for a righthanded spherical coordinate system are $ \vec{e}_r = \sin \theta \cos\phi \vec{e}_x + \sin \theta \sin\phi \vec{e}_y + \cos \theta \vec{e}_z $ $ \vec{e}_{\theta} = \cos\theta…
