Unformatted text preview: tudes make up for the fact that we set the magnitudes of the vectors to to unity. Equation (219) yields (223) The preceding equation can be inverted by noting that , et cetera, because , , and are mutually perpendicular unit vectors. Thus, we obtain (224) This equation determines the three normal coordinates,
constants. , , , , , in terms of the three conventional . In general, the normal coordinates are undetermined to arbitrary multiplicative...
