Current Topic:
Rotation as a vector
Although the reference frame has turned an angle, theta = (alpha, beta, gamma), and the equation of this motion is a curve, all you need to know in your case is the resultant, which will be a straight line, and hence a vector (i, j, k).

A vector subtraction of the latter vector and the original vector will yield the final position vector.
