Often the solution of a physical problem is made easier by first selecting an appropriate coordinate system. In general, it is easier to solve a problem involving spherical 14Michael Faraday (1791-1867), English scientist who laid the foundations of classical field theory (despite little formal education). 15Andr6 Marie Amp'ere (1775-1836), French physicist and mathematician who is known for his work in electricity and magnetism.

27, we have 2 u1 = p, u = 4, and u3 = x. Also, we have x = x1 = PCOS,, y = x 2 = psinq5, and x = x3 = x. 6. PROBLEMS 49 The scale factors for cylindrical coordinates are hl = 1, h2 = p, and h3 = 1. Similarly, it can be shown that the scale factors for spherical coordinates are hl = 1, ha = r , and h3 = r sin 9 . 1 The pressure at any depth h in a fluid at rest is given by Ph= Po phx where p is the density of the fluid. By use of dimensionless analysis, determine the dimension of the quantity represented by x; what is the name of this physical quantity?
