In the same way, we are free to orient our axes in any way that is convenient to us. 2. 2D Cartesian Space axis which direction we consider to be positive. 6. Notice that the origin is in the upper left-hand corner, +x points to the right, and +y points down rather than up. Unfortunately, when Cartesia was being laid out, the only mapmakers were in the neighboring town of Dyslexia. The minor-level functionary who sent the contract out to bid neglected take into account that the dyslectic mapmaker was equally likely to draw his maps with north pointing up, down, left, or right.

5. No matter how many times we flip an axis, we can always find a way to rotate things back into the standard orientation. Let’s see how this idea extends into 3D. 10 once more. We stated earlier that +z points into the page. Does it have to be this way? What if we made +z point out of the page? This is certainly allowed, so let’s flip the z-axis. Now, can we rotate the coordinate system around such that things line up with the original coordinate system? As it turns out, we cannot. We can rotate things to line up two axes at a time, but the third axes always points in the wrong direction!

Today the son owns his own car and car radio, and has realized, with some degree of embarrassment, that he also often turns the radio volume down without turning it off. However, he offers in his defense that he turns it all the way down, below everyone’s threshold of hearing. 5. Negating a Vector of zero. The point is that these absolute systems aren’t used in many cases—the relative system is the one that’s the most useful. Velocity. How fast are you moving right now? Perhaps you’re sitting in a comfy chair, so you’d say that your speed was zero.
