Transform spherical coordinates to Cartesian

**Syntax**

**Description**

```
[x,y,z] = sph2cart(THETA,PHI,R)
```

transforms the corresponding elements of spherical coordinate arrays to Cartesian, or *xyz*, coordinates. `THETA`

, `PHI`

, and `R`

must all be the same size. `THETA`

and `PHI`

are angular displacements in radians from the positive *x*-axis and from the *x*-*y* plane, respectively.

**Algorithm**

The mapping from spherical coordinates to three-dimensional Cartesian coordinates is
