# how can you define a measure for the angle between the coordinate system component ( x, y, z )

## how can you define a measure for the angle between the coordinate system component ( x, y, z )

(OP)
hello

I know that one of the coordinate components ( such as x ) that is the marker of that part , changes by an angle during simulation …

how can I define a measure to between the vector components of that coordinate system to give me the angle …

I have tried the angle measure in Adams/View but it gives me a constant zero value after the simulation .

i'm trying to find the wheel angle of a vehicle so I use this marker :

i define the tips of the angles and vertex of the angle the same because i know that only the x component is changing …

am i doing something wrong ?

how should i define the angle so i could measure the wheel angle during the simulation ???

thanks

### RE: how can you define a measure for the angle between the coordinate system component ( x, y, z )

With that setup you are measuring the rotation of a marker with respect to itself, in its own coordinate frame. Not likely to be successful.

So pick each end of the stub axle and take it from there.
