CartToPol {DescTools} | R Documentation |
Transform cartesian into polar coordinates, resp. to spherical coordinates and vice versa.
CartToPol(x, y)
PolToCart(r, theta)
CartToSph(x, y, z, up = TRUE)
SphToCart(r, theta, phi, up = TRUE)
x , y , z |
vectors with the xy-coordianates to be transformed. |
r |
a vector with the radius of the points. |
theta |
a vector with the angle(s) of the points. |
phi |
a vector with the angle(s) of the points. |
up |
logical. If set to |
Angles are in radians, not degrees (i.e., a right angle is pi/2). Use DegToRad
to convert,
if you don't wanna do it by yourself.
All parameters are recycled if necessary.
PolToCart returns a list of x and y coordinates of the points.
CartToPol returns a list of r for the radius and theta for the angles of the given points.
