    Cylindrical Coordinates

    * why is there ρ in graph (from where came)?

    *what is difference between "ρ0" and "ρ" ?

    ρ is the radial coordinate. ρ0 is a particular constant value of the radial coordinate at which a differential length or differential area is computed.

    \rho=\sqrt{x^2 + y^2}

    As shown in the diagram the cylindrical coordinates are ρ, φ, and z
