For a rotation around an arbitrary axis (x,y,z), how can I calculate the corresponding rotations around the unit vectors (1,0,0) (0,1,0) and (0,0,1)? (That is, I know the number of radians to rotate around the (x,y,z) axis and want to know the corresponding rotation angles around the unit vectors) Edited by - Lord Chaos on 4/27/00 5:44:02 AM

To convert radians to degrees use the formula:

degrees = radians * PI / 180

Where PI = 3.14159
