Let’s assume a fixed distance a and a circle large enough to include this distance as a chord. A certain angle is formed by this distance when it is observed from the opposite side of the circle. If we now expand the circle a little bit, this angle will become smaller. And if we reduce the size of the circle, then the angle will increase. 5 Graphical Solution 27 ✻ψ2✻ ψ1 h−a ϕ ❄ h ✻ a ❄ ✛ ✲ x ❄ Fig. 3. ϕ1 > a ϕ2 > a ϕ3 a Fig. 3 The visual angle depends on the size of the circle. The bigger the circle, the smaller the angle formed by the chord a.

Since we’re looking at vectors in the plane, we take a 2 × 2 field. This field describes the representation. In order to characterize it as a mathematical rule, we enclose it in parentheses. This is done as follows: 12 . 34 In order to extract the mapping rule, we look at the two unit vectors e1 = (1, 0) and e2 = (0, 1) and image them: e1 = (1, 0) → (−1, 0), e2 = (0, 1) → (0, 1). 5 The Mirror Problem Expressed Mathematically 19 We’ve written this down in a relaxed manner. 3. The first unit vector e1 = (1, 0) points exactly to the right from the origin.

Where we end up is where our actual starting point is located, because the entire procedure is fully reversible. So, let’s take a look at our sketch. Our car in the middle of the parking space, close to the curbstone. To exit the parking space, we first back up until we almost touch the rear car. Mathematically, we’ll take this distance as 0 mm. Please keep in mind, though, that this is only the theory; in the real world, the distance should be around 5 cm. Then we turn the steering wheel as far as possible to the left and start driving carefully.
