    Finding the angle and axis lengths of an ellipse

    Hi, I have an ellipse defined by \|\mathbf{A}^{-1}v\| = 1, where v is a vector in the ellipse and \mathbf A is a real, invertible 2-by-2 matrix. How can I find the lengths of the axis of the ellipse as well as the angle of the major axis? I need to know this because I want to plot the ellipse...

    formula for the angle between two intersectiing planes

    Hello, Referring to the picture below, I have 4 points in orthogonal 3D space (sorry if I couldn't make the picture look more 3d). The vectors AB and BC lie in an Euclidian plane while the vectors AB and BD lie in a different Euclidian plane. These planes intersect along the vector AB. I am...

    find the angle between two lines formed by three points in n-space

    Hello, I wasn't sure where to post this, so please feel free to move it. In some ways, I suspect this is a very elementary question for an expert, so I posted in on the pre-university side. Here is an example in 2D of the problem I am looking at, given three sets of coordinates...

    angle outside triangle

    this is actually mohr's circle formula, forget about the theory,let's focus on the mathematics part. I couldnt understand why the tan( 2 θs1) = -(σx -σy) / 2τxy ? 2θs1 is outside the triangle theorically, tan(180-α )= -tan( α ) , so tan( 2 θs1) = -(σx -σy) / 2τxy , the vertical staright line of...

    Proving angle equivalency

    Hi everyone, Is there a way to prove that angle B and angle C are equivalent in this situation? The argument my textbook made certainly seemed to imply that, and it really bothers me that I can't quite see it. I'm worried it's really simple and I'm overthinking it... I haven't taken geometry in...
