# Calculating the Fourier Transform of a Multivariable Function in 3D

I want to calculate the Fourier Transform of $$\hat{f}(s)$$ for the function $$f(x)=\frac{x}{|x|^3}$$ for $$x\in\mathbb{R}^3$$.

In the application where I am using the Fourier Transform I only care about the case where $$s$$ is a unit vector, and I'm hoping that, in that case, I'm hoping that $$\hat{f}(s)=-i\sqrt{\frac{\pi}{2}}s$$ when $$|s|=1$$ (this will exactly match the coefficient I need in a larger proof where $$s$$ is a unit normal vector).

I also tried converting the integral into spherical coordinates and my integral became $$\hat{f}(s)=\iiint e_re^{-ir(s\cdot e_r)}\sin(\phi)drd\phi d\theta,$$

where $$e_r=(\cos(\theta)\sin(\phi),\sin(\theta)\sin(\phi),\cos(\phi))$$

I am not sure how to proceed from here.

$$\nabla \cdot \left( \frac{x}{|x|^3}\right) = 4\pi\delta_0$$
$$ik\cdot \hat{f} = 4\pi \hat{\delta_0} = \sqrt{8\pi}$$
using the $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}$$ prefactor convention for the Fourier transform. Then we have
$$\hat{f}(k) = -i\sqrt{8\pi} \frac{k}{|k|^2}$$
