Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  ------------------------------------------------- 
   rectan     I   Rectangular coordinates of a point. 
   r          O   Distance of the point from Z axis. 
   lon        O   Angle (radians) of the point from XZ plane 
   z          O   Height of the point above XY plane. 
 

Detailed_Input

 
   rectan     Rectangular coordinates of the point of interest. 
 

Detailed_Output

 
   r          Distance of the point of interest from Z axis. 
 
   lon        Cylindrical angle (in radians) of the point of 
              interest from XZ plane. The `lon' range is [0, 2pi].
 
   z          Height of the point above XY plane. 
 

Parameters

Particulars

 
   This routine transforms the coordinates of a point from 
   rectangular to cylindrical coordinates. 
 

Examples

 
   Below are two tables. 
 
   Listed in the first table (under x(1), x(2) and x(3) ) are a 
   number of points whose rectangular coordinates coorindates are 
   taken from the set {-1, 0, 1}. 
 
   The result of the code fragment 
 
        reccyl_c ( x, r,  lon, z );
 
        Use the CSPICE routine convrt_c to convert the angular 
        quantities to degrees 
 
        convrt_c (  lon, "RADIANS", "DEGREES", lon  );
 
   are listed to 4 decimal places in the second parallel table under 
   r (radius), lon  (longitude), and  z (same as rectangular z 
   coordinate).
