Wondering what is the use of 'acos' function?

It is essential in games, animations and drawings to determine the location of two objects relating to each other.

To the point: the angle of two vectors is calculated by

           v1X*v2X + v1Y*v2Y
  acos(--------------------------)=angle between two vectors.
               |v1| * |v2|

|v1| and |v2| are the length of the vectors and calculated using Pithagoras-formula: |v1|=sqrt(v1X*v1X + v1Y*v1Y)

This helped me to calculate and share given space for 'n' amount of objects so that they don't overlap.

Enjoy! :-)
