## How do you find the rotation transformation matrix?

To find the rotation of a vector we simply multiply the required rotation matrix with the coordinates of the given vector. In 2D space, this is given by ⎡⎢⎣x′y′⎤⎥⎦ [ x ′ y ′ ] = ⎡⎢⎣cosθ−sinθsinθcosθ⎤⎥⎦ [ c o s θ − s i n θ s i n θ c o s θ ] ⎡⎢⎣xy⎤⎥⎦ [ x y ] .

**What is the formula of direction cosines?**

The direction cosine for a point A (a, b, c) in a three-dimensional space is the direction cosine of the line connecting this point with the origin O. The direction cosine of the line OA is l = a√a2+b2+c2 a a 2 + b 2 + c 2 , m = b√a2+b2+c2 b a 2 + b 2 + c 2 , n = c√a2+b2+c2 c a 2 + b 2 + c 2 .

**How do you convert direction cosines to direction ratios?**

Any number proportional to the direction cosine is known as the direction ratio of a line. These direction numbers are represented by a, b and c. We can conclude that sum of the squares of the direction cosines of a line is 1….Direction Cosines.

### How do you write a transformation matrix?

Polygons could also be represented in matrix form, we simply place all of the coordinates of the vertices into one matrix. This is called a vertex matrix. We can use matrices to translate our figure, if we want to translate the figure x+3 and y+2 we simply add 3 to each x-coordinate and 2 to each y-coordinate.

**What is a translational matrix?**

A type of transformation that occurs when a figure is moved from one location to another on the coordinate plane without changing its size, shape or orientation is a translation . Matrix addition can be used to find the coordinates of the translated figure.

**What are 4×4 matrices used for?**

A 4×4 matrix can represent all affine transformations (including translation, rotation around origin, reflection, glides, scale from origin contraction and expansion, shear, dilation, spiral similarities).

#### What is rotation matrix formula?

The trace of a rotation matrix is equal to the sum of its eigenvalues. For n = 2, a rotation by angle θ has trace 2 cos θ. For n = 3, a rotation around any axis by angle θ has trace 1 + 2 cos θ. For n = 4, and the trace is 2(cos θ + cos φ), which becomes 4 cos θ for an isoclinic rotation.
