If you are referring to polar co-ordinates, you need to specify the radius of the vector along with the angle it makes.How to write a vector 's' in x y co-ordinate system, as function of (x,y,theta) ? 's' is inclined at an angle of theta to y axis?
If I understand you want basically any vector that makes an angle theta with the x-axis, then basically the "slope" of the vector is simply tan(theta).Thanks Chir
I would like to know, if i can write the any vector inclined at angle theta to y axis as a function of x,y,theta.
i.e, i don't want resolution of the vector into x and y coordinates. as x= s sin(theta);y=scos(theta)
Is s=sqrt(x^2+y^2)[xsin(theta)+ycos(theta)] correct??
I'm not sure exactly what you are getting at, but I'll take a stab and say you're looking at rotating things about an arbitrary point.Thanks:) Am working on sloshing in rectangular container subjected to horizontal, vertical and rotational excitation.
Am trying to formulate the boundary conditions incorporating the excitations in it. My problem now is I would like to write rotation component in terms of translation.
