Item Picture
written by Surendranath Reddy
This applet displays a point or an volume in three dimensions using spherical coordinates. The user can change the radius and angles and move the point of view. It should be noted that the author uses a different naming convention for the angles than is common for physics in the United States, using θ for the azimuthal angle and φ for the polar angle.

This is part of a large collection of physics and math applets by the author.
