DOFS

<< < (2/2)

waltr:
google "Degrees of freedom"
Then you will have lots of good reading to do that will answer your question.

Pomacs:
What does a DOF (degree of freedom) mean ?

Let me take the door as an example, It can rotate around the side it's hinged to . yes ?
Then this is a degree of freedom, Ok ?

A body in space. How many DOFs it has ?

to answer it, Imagine the Cartesian co-ordinate system X-Y-Z

I can go along X +ve or X -ve    - >  1 DOF

I can go along Y +ve or Y -ve    - >  1 DOF

I can go along Z +ve or Z -ve    - >  1 DOF

I can rotate about X - > 1 DOF

I can rotate about Y - > 1 DOF

I can rotate about Z - > 1 DOF

- I hope you got it, Good luck  :)
