Do you know the radius of the circle?
Basically, I want to specify the centre coordinate of a circle, and then find the new coordinate after travelling a specified distance along the circumference in a clockwise direction.
So sort of like:
2

1o
Finding the coordinate for 2 after travelling in a specified distance in an arc around the point 'o'.
Is there any formula to achieve this?
(PS: if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move this)
Thanks,

So, arc length is given by where is the angle through which you have traveled. Let's say you have initial position vector
To find the new coordinate, I would use rotation matrices. Let
Then the new position vector is going to be
So it all boils down to matrix multiplication.
Does this make sense?
