# Matrix X-Rotation

Online computer calculates the rotation of a 4x4 matrix around the X axis

## Calculate matrix 4x4 rotation X

The active matrix rotation (rotating object) or the passive matrix rotation (rotating coordinates) can be calculated

For the passive matrix rotation, the vector of a center for the rotation can optionally be specified

The unit of measurement for the angle can be switched between degrees or radians

## Description of the matrix X axis rotation

The matrix rotation distinguishes between active and passive rotation.

### Active Rotation

With active rotation, the vector or the object is rotated in the coordinate system. The active rotation is also called a geometric transformation. The rotation is counterclockwise.

Example of a 90 ° rotation of the X-axis

### Passive rotation

With passive rotation, the coordinate system is rotated. The vector remains unchanged. The rotation is clockwise.

Example of a 90 ° rotation of the X-axis
