Description: | Three Euler angles φ_{1}, Φ and φ_{2} can be representated by a single point on a 3D graph called Euler Space. Since an orientation is determined by its rotation, a set of Euler angles uniquely defines an orientation. If we define a space in which the three coordinates correspond to the Euler angles, each point in this space represents an orientation. This interactive exercise defines Euler Space, by using the sliders the orientation can be changed and one can observe the point moving in Euler Space. |
