Re: Vector transformations

Hi, Thanks for the replies. Specifically, I'm trying to find the euler angles which describe a translation between orthogonal coordinate systems. My process was/is to somehow find the rotation matrix, then calculate the euler angles from that. I think my first mistake was to describe the coordinate ...

Vector transformations

Dear all, I have a linear algebra problem, but seem to have forgotten everything I learnt in 1st year maths. Please help! How do I find the 3x3 matrix (let's call it M) which transforms one 3x1 vector (A) to another 3x1 vector (B)? i.e. B(3x1) = M(3x3).A(3x1) I guess this can be solved fairly easily...

Needless to...

Grip isn't needed for a plane to take off at all. Seaplanes work, along with those antarctic ones with skids.

A conventional wheel-driven car on a conveyor belt would be a more interesting problem?

Paint your face black, wear black, and dance around to no music as an iPod commercial? If I could find a stick-on handlebar moustache i'd go as a 1920's cat-burglar. It'd also be fun to wear a black sheet & mask and be the no-face-monster from Spirited Away. If i had enough foam + fabric i'd go ...
