CHANGES IN EQUATION COEFFICIENTS PRODUCED BY TRANSLATION AND ROTATION OF THE COORDINATE SYSTEM



Changes in equation coefficients produced by translation. What changes are produced in the coefficients of the general equation of the second degree


1)        f(x, y, z) = ax2 + by2 + cz2 + 2fyz + 2gxz + 2hxy + 2px + 2qy + 2rz + d = 0


by a translation of the coordinate system? Let x'-y'-z' be a coordinate system whose origin is located at point (x0, y0, z0) of an x-y-z system with corresponding axes parallel. Let us observe the result of substituting

 

x = x' + x0

y = y' + y0

z = z' + z0


into equation 1) above.


The equation becomes


f(x', y', z') = f(x' + x0, y' + y0, z' + z0) = a(x' + x0)2 + b(y' + y0)2 + c(z' + c0)2 + f(y' + y0)(z' + z0) + 2g (x' + x0)(z' + z0) + 2h(x' + x0)(y' + y0) + 2 p(x' + x0) + 2q (y' + y0) + 2r(z' + z0) + d


            = ax' 2 + by' 2 + cz' 2 + 2fy'z' + 2gx'z' + 2hx'y' + 2(ax0 + hy0 + gz0 + p)x' + 2(hx0 + by0 + fz0 + q)y' + 2(gx0 + fy0 + cz0 + r)z' + ax02 + by02 + cz02 + 2f y0z0 + 2gx0z0 + 2hx0y0 + 2px0 + 2qy0 + 2rz0 + d


            = ax' 2 + by' 2 + cz' 2 + 2fy'z' + 2gx'z' + 2hx'y' + 2(ax0 + hy0 + gz0 + p)x' + 2(hx0 + by0 + fz0 + q)y' + 2(gx0 + fy0 + cz0 + r)z' + f(x0, y0, z0) = 0


We see that a translation has no effect on the coefficients of the second degree terms (i.e. the coefficients a, b, c, f, g, h). It only changes the first degree coefficients p, q, r and the constant term d where

            r ole2.gif gx0 + fy0 + cz0 + r

Changes in equation coefficients produced by rotation of the coordinate system

about it origin. Let the origin of a x'-y'-z' system be coincident with the origin of an x-y-z system and let λ1, μ1, ν1 be the direction cosines of the x' axis, λ2, μ2, ν2 be the direction cosines of the y' axis, λ3, μ3, ν3 be the direction cosines of the z' axis as referred to the x-y-z system.


 Then


            x = λ1x' + λ2y' + λ3z'

            y = μ1x' + μ2y' + μ3z'

            z = ν1x' + ν2y' + ν3z'






Question. What effect does this rotation of the coordinate system have on the coefficients of the general equation of the second degree 1)? 


Answer. A rotation of the coordinate system causes changes in all the coefficients a, b, c, f, g, h, p, q, r. The constant term d, however, is unchanged.
