# Right-Handed/Left-Handed Rules

For any kind of vector mathematics it is common to find cases in which you want to find a vector that is perpendicular to two other vectors, e.x. current/magnetic field/force, the moment of force (the cross-product of two force vectors), coordinates, etc.. We know from linear algebra that we can calculate this perpendicular vector by … Continue reading Right-Handed/Left-Handed Rules

# Describing a Coordinate System

One of the fundamentals of any spatial project is establishing a coordinate system to describe the data. This coordinate system allows us to pass our data along to another person and they are able to understand it, or enter the data into a computer system to process the data. A coordinate system is described by … Continue reading Describing a Coordinate System
