This tool converts quaternion values into Euler angles for easier interpretation and use in 3D applications.

## Quaternion to Euler Calculator

This calculator converts quaternions (qx, qy, qz, qw) to Euler angles (roll, pitch, yaw).

### How to Use

- Enter the quaternion components (qx, qy, qz, qw) in the respective input fields.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- View the results in terms of roll, pitch, and yaw in the output fields.

### How It Calculates

The script converts the quaternion components into Euler angles using the following formulas:

- Roll (X) is calculated using atan2 of specific quaternion components.
- Pitch (Y) is derived from arcsine of a quaternion component ratio, with edge cases for gimbal lock.
- Yaw (Z) is determined using atan2 of relevant quaternion components.

### Limitations

The calculator assumes normalized quaternions. Providing non-normalized quaternions may result in incorrect Euler angles. The pitch angle is limited to the range of -π/2 to π/2 due to the nature of asin function, and extreme values may result in gimbal lock conditions.
