rotx {AvInertia}R Documentation

A 3x3 rotation matrix allowing rotation about the x-axis. Constructed using a cosine rotation matrix where the rotation angle in degrees is measured counterclockwise allowing positive rotation under the right hand rule.

Description

A 3x3 rotation matrix allowing rotation about the x-axis. Constructed using a cosine rotation matrix where the rotation angle in degrees is measured counterclockwise allowing positive rotation under the right hand rule.

Usage
