An object's absolute elements are the position and velocity components relative to the origin of the coordinate frame.

The

**Absolute Position**is the vector that describes the position relative to the origin of the coordinate frame.The

**Absolute Velocity**is the vector that describes the velocity relative to the origin of the coordinate frame.

The absolute elements are as follows.

**Absolute Position X**is the x-coordinate of the absolute position, and has the symbol**rx**.

The x-coordinate of the absolute position may be any number.**Absolute Position Y**is the y-coordinate of the absolute position, and has the symbol**ry**.

The y-coordinate of the absolute position may be any number.**Absolute Position Z**is the z-coordinate of the absolute position, and has the symbol**rz**.

The z-coordinate of the absolute position may be any number.**Absolute Velocity X**is the x-coordinate of the absolute velocity, and has the symbol**vx**.

The x-coordinate of the absolute velocity may be any number.**Absolute Velocity Y**is the y-coordinate of the absolute velocity, and has the symbol**vy**.

The y-coordinate of the absolute velocity may be any number.**Absolute Velocity Z**is the z-coordinate of the absolute velocity, and has the symbol**vz**.

The z-coordinate of the absolute velocity may be any number.
