## How a Multivariable Function Changes with Respect to an Azimuthal Coordinate

For a functions $f(x)$, $g(y)$ and $h(z)$, the chain rule yields $ \frac{\partial f(x)}{\partial \phi} = […]

## How a Multivariable Function Changes with Respect to a Polar Coordinate

For a functions $f(x)$, $g(y)$ and $h(z)$, the chain rule yields $ \frac{\partial f(x)}{\partial \theta} = […]

## How a Multivariable Function Changes with Respect to a Radial Coordinate

First focus on the Cartesian coordinate $x$, which depends on the spherical coordinates $r,\theta,$ and […]
