Cuboids

Two separate cuboids with different orientation in space. Determine the angle between them, knowing the direction cosine matrix for each separate cuboid. u1=(0.62955056, 0.094432584, 0.77119944) u2=(0.14484653, 0.9208101, 0.36211633)

Correct result:

a =  62.7801 °

Solution:

s=0.62955056 0.14484653+0.094432584 0.9208101+0.77119944 0.362116330.4574 a=180πarccos(s)=180πarccos(0.4574)=62.7801=624648"



We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!

use scalar products to determine angle between two 3D vectors (if direction cosines gives -> its unit vectors)
