Say, i have a vector a, defined in a coordinate system, x-y-z and i rotate the axes by an angle theta around the z-axis, so i have my z-component invariant in this change of basis. Can someone show me why,
[tex] a_x' = a_x cos\theta + a_y sin\theta [/tex] and
[tex] a_x' = -a_x sin\theta + a_y cos\theta [/tex]
i can't seem to find any place where they show how this is done.
