Tilt angle for a flat

  1. Sep 3, 2010 #1
    Hi all,
    a flat intersects with unknown tilt angle a Cartesian coordinate system into it's origin. Let's suppose the flat "rising" from negative Z values. We know:
    - vertical angles between flat and X, Y axis, let's suppose 10° each;
    - horizontal angle between tilt direction and axis. Because the vertical angles between flat and X, Y axis are identical this angle will be 45°;
    I'd like to know how to calculate the angle between the flat formed by X and Y axis of the reference system, and the ideal stright line representing the tilt direction.
    I hope I was clear....english is not my native language... .
    Thank's in advance for your time.
