Questions tagged [cylindrical-coordinates]

Questions on cylindrical coordinates, a coordinate system where points in space are represented by their distance to the $z$-axis ($r$), the angle the line joining the orthogonal projection of the point on the $xy$-plane and the origin makes with the positive $x$-axis ($\theta$) and the $z$ coordinate of the point.
