Find a linear transformation T from R3 to R3 which has the effect of rotating an object clockwise by angle θ around the x-axis.

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that I should work with matrices to show how I came up to the final matrix, which i think has to be the following:

|x'| | 1 0 0 |

|y'| = | 0 cosθ -sinθ|

|z'| | 0 sinθ cosθ|

However, I dont know how to proceed to show how I came to the following matrix.

Any help is appreciated..
