# Orientation, Reflected Load, and Other Plots

Contents

**Yaw, Pitch, and Roll in Results**

Orientation of one coordinate system relative to another is defined by a sequence of three successive rotations. Yaw, pitch, and roll define one such space-fixed rotation sequence. There are multiple ways to define this sequence.

**Euler Angle Results**

Orientation of one coordinate system relative to another is defined by a sequence of three successive rotations. The three Euler angles define one such body-fixed rotation sequence.

**Bryant Angle Results**

Orientation of one coordinate system relative to another is defined by a sequence of three successive rotations. The three Bryant angles define one such body-fixed rotation sequence.

**Plotting Rigid Body Orientation**

You can plot the orientation of a moving part.

**Plotting Normalized Rodrigues Parameters**

Rodrigues parameters specify the transformation of coordinates between a rotating frame and another reference frame. You can plot normalized Rodrigues parameters to specify the rotational orientation of a moving part.

**Plotting Projection Angles for Rotating Parts**

You can plot projection angles to specify the rotational orientation of a moving part.

**Reflected Load Inertia and Reflected Load Mass**

You can use reflected load information to help select an appropriately sized motor to withstand the load. For Motion Analysis studies, you can compute and plot reflected load results.
