PostPosted: Tue Jul 01, 2003 5:24 pm   Post subject: Angle of a line...

how do i calculate angle A knowing that line1 is always horizontal and having the coordinates of line2...
i know it has to be done using Sine and Cosine but i dont exactly know how....

SOH CAH TOA

sin=op/hyp

your hyp is the distance from point1 to point2
since line 2 is always horizontal that distance is y2-y1

angle=sin-1((y2-y1)/distance (p1,p2))

since tan of an angle is the oposite side over the adjancent side, you simply set up an equation of tan(x)=10/20 tan(x)=1/2 then u juss do tan inverse and you get 45 degrees

yepyep just something to add.. since tan is opposite side over adjacent side.. that means that it is simply the slope of the line meaning that tanA where A is the required angle is equal to the slope of the line.. so A = arctand(slope of line)

hmmm.... got it!!! thx...
here's another question how do i caculate tangent (a) in Turing?

there is no tangent in turing, but since tan(A)=sin(A)/cos(A) just substitute it

no it's not i thought of that and i tried it b4 it doesn't work !!! =(
Edit:oh wait nvm i used cos instead of cosd now it works...

code:
function tan (r : real) : real
    result (sind (r) / cosd (r))
end tan

put tan (1)


how do i do arctan or sine-1? **-1 doesn't work =/

funny thing is, the geniuses who made turing(tom) decided not to put a inverse cos and sin function, said it was irrelevant.

so the best bet for using inverse tan is to make one urself....

*stick foot in mouth

whoa, they had an arctan function? damn.......Im ignorant.......

wow that's really cool... make ur own inverse functions

its math dodge.. you go to massey you should undetrstand those..

i didn't know they had arctan tangent in turing either... in fact that was all that i needed...
so here's how it goes:
code:
View.Set ("offscreenonly")

var x1, x2, y1, y2, b := 0
var slope, ang : real
x1 := 100

y1 := 100

loop
    mousewhere (x2, y2, b)
    drawline (0, y1, 640, y1, 12)
    if not (x2 = x1) then
        slope := (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
    end if
    ang := arctand (slope)
    locate (1, 1)
    put "coords : ", x1, "/", y1, "/", x2, "/", y2
    put "slope : ", slope
    put "angle :", ang
    drawline (x1, y1, x2, y2, 9)
    delay (5)
    View.Update
    cls
end loop

there some problems there
such as the negative angles and the fact and from 180 to 270 show as 0-90

lol well yeah... but it is fixable if you try to fix it... i have fixed it and used it in my new particle engine with gravity support which i'll upload in a few minutes...
