Quaternion Modulus

Calculate modulus of quaternion

• Library:
• Aerospace Blockset / Utilities / Math Operations

Description

The Quaternion Modulus block calculates the magnitude for a given quaternion. Aerospace Blockset™ uses quaternions that are defined using the scalar-first convention. For the equations used for the quaternion and quaternion modulus, see Algorithms.

Ports

Input

expand all

Quaternions in the form of [ q 0 , r 0 , ..., q 1 , r 1 , ... , q 2 , r 2 , ... , q 3 , r 3 , ...], specified as a quaternion or vector of quaternions.

Data Types: `double`

Output

expand all

Quaternion modulus or vector of quaternion moduli in the form of [| q |, | r |, ...].

Data Types: `double`

Algorithms

The quaternion has the form of

`$q={q}_{0}+i{q}_{1}+j{q}_{2}+k{q}_{3}.$`

The quaternion modulus has the form of

`$|q|=\sqrt{{q}_{0}^{2}+{q}_{1}^{2}+{q}_{2}^{2}+{q}_{3}^{2}}$`
