## What is Cartesian coordinate system in physics?

A Cartesian coordinate system is the unique coordinate system in which the set of unit vectors at different points in space are equal. In polar coordinates, the unit vectors at two different points are not equal because they point in different directions.

## What is Cartesian coordinates with example?

An example is ( x,y ) = (2,-5). The origin is usually, but not always, assigned the value (0,0). Cartesian three-space, also called xyz -space, has a third axis, oriented at right angles to the xy plane. This axis, usually called the z axis, passes through the origin of the xy -plane.

## What do you mean by Cartesian?

1 : either of two coordinates (see coordinate entry 3 sense 1) that locate a point on a plane and measure its distance from either of two intersecting straight-line axes along a line parallel to the other axis.

## What are the types of coordinate system?

Data is defined in both horizontal and vertical coordinate systems. Horizontal coordinate systems locate data across the surface of the earth, and vertical coordinate systems locate the relative height or depth of data. Horizontal coordinate systems can be of three types: geographic, projected, or local.
