Hello,
I am trying to a find a point on a x,y plane from two angles.
Let's say the X,Y plane is 1000 by 1000 and the point I am looking for is (700,300).
Angle from (0,0) to point is 23.2*
Angle from (1000,0) to point is -45*
I already gave the answer, I'm just curious how to find a point with two angles on a grid.
Here is a visual representative of the problem.
Hmm.. I don't know if I'm calculating the angles right. Sorry I have never taken trig before.
From point (700,300) to (0,0)
atan2((700-0),(300-0)) = 23.2*
and point (700,300) to (1000,0)
atan2((700-1000),(300-0)) = 135*
Is this correct, if so, how would I find the intersection point of these two angles?
I have another scenario of this. How would I find the point listed (?,?) in the picture that I drew?
From point (0,0) to point (600,575), the angle is 43.7805 degrees.
From point (?,?) to point (600,575), the angle is 65.2698
I then subtracted both these angles to get the angle in-between the two lines, which if I am correct, is 21.4893 degrees.
So now, what do I do from here?
Thank you.
ANSWER: The point (?,?) is 512,384. I just want to know how to get it.
First of all: Do yourself and do us a favour and start a new thread if you have a new question. Otherwise you risk that nobody will notice your need for help.
1. Calculate the length
2. Calculate all interior angles of the triangle OPQ:
3. Use the Sine rule to calculate the length of x:
4. The coordinates of Q are
I debated starting a new thread for this but figured it wouldn't make much sense, since it is a continuation of the problem stated above.
Anyways, How do I find the point P, pretending that was the unknown point. I tried changing the formula around by couldn't get my answer to be (600,575)
