Everybody should have received it from the mailing list


How to test your assignment

Go on the field, and measure real life angle

Measure it on the paper, with any protractor

Take this example :
A = Telecom Tower, B = Australian American War Memorial = >
AmB = 142 °
C = City Hill, D = Parliament House Flag => CmD = 135.5 °

Handedness
In 3 dimensions, a basis B for a coordinate system given by the 3D vectors
V1, V2, V3 posses a propriety
called handedness.
Right handed basis <=> Right hand rules <=> (V1
x V2) . V3 > 0
