(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find and compare the transformations of the angle of the velocity vector of a particle and the angle of an inclined stick. The relationship between the two frames is as usual.

In frame S' a stick makes an angle of θ' with the x' axis. What is the angle θ measured in the S frame? What is the length in the S frame?

2. Relevant equations

x' = xcosθ + ysinθ

y' = -xsinθ + ycosθ ?

3. The attempt at a solution

I really have no idea what the question is really asking. Thanks.
