Rotate Vector

Introduction: Rotate a Vector tool is designed to rotate a 2D vector by a specified angle.

Steps to Use:

  1. Input Vector: Enter the x and y components of the vector separated by commas.
  2. Specify Angle: Input the angle of rotation in degrees.
  3. Rotate: Click the “Rotate” button to perform the rotation.
  4. View Result: The rotated vector will be displayed below the form.

Functionality: The tool calculates the rotated vector using the provided angle of rotation and displays the result.


  • Precision: Allows for precise rotation of 2D vectors, ensuring accurate results.
  • Efficiency: Provides a quick and easy way to rotate vectors without the need for complex mathematical calculations.
  • User-Friendly: Simple interface with clear input fields and immediate feedback on the rotated vector.


  1. Can I use this tool to rotate vectors in 3D space? No, this tool is specifically designed for 2D vectors.
  2. What happens if I enter non-numeric values or invalid input? The tool expects numeric input for the vector components and the angle. If non-numeric values are entered, the tool may produce unexpected results or display an error.
  3. Is there a limit to the angle of rotation I can input? No, you can input any angle of rotation. The tool will calculate the rotation accordingly.
  4. Can I rotate vectors counterclockwise? Yes, positive angles will rotate the vector counterclockwise, and negative angles will rotate it clockwise.
  5. What happens if I enter a vector with more than two components? The tool only considers the first two components of the vector for rotation. Additional components are ignored.
