Methods/Steps

First, it is important to understand that a single spatial component has 6 degrees of freedom, as opposed to 3 degrees of freedom for a plane.

2

Calculation formula: F=6n-5P5-4P4-3P3-2P2-P1.

3

F is the degree of institutional freedom. n is the number of active components. P5 is a component with only 1 degree of freedom and 5 constraints.

4

P4 is a component with only 2 degrees of freedom and 4 constraints. And so on.

5

The total degree of freedom minus the total constraint is the required degree of freedom.
