DriveWorks Pro 18: VectorAngle [send feedback...]

VectorAngle

This function calculates the angle between two vectors.

Syntax

VectorAngle([Vector 1], [Vector 2])

Where:

Vector 1 is a pipe-bar delimited list representing the first vector (X|Y|Z).

Vector 2 is a pipe-bar delimited list representing the second vector (X|Y|Z).

Examples

RuleResult
VectorAngle("20|37","38|27")Will return the absolute angle (in degrees) between the two 2D vectors, 26.21 (values have been rounded for clarity).
VectorAngle("20|37|58","38|27|28")Will return the absolute angle (in degrees) between the two 3D vectors, 29.73 (values have been rounded for clarity).
Floating Point Precision

Due to floating point precision, some calculations may not be as precise as expected.

This can be avoided by following the advice in the topic Info: Floating Point Precision.
