# Matrix for transform line into y-axis

I have a line with equation $x_i = a_i t + b_i$, for $i = 1, 2, 3$ (if such way not good i can use any other) with which matrix i can transform this line into $y$-axis? I need to do polenty of calculation around this line and its much easy to do it with $y$-axis than with this line. Thanks.

For parallel line to the $y$-axis, the direction vector $a=(a_1,a_2,a_3)^T$ should go to $(0,1,0)^T$. Probably the best if you can extend $a$ to an orthonormal basis, finding (column-) vectors $u,v$ such that $|u|=|a|=|v|=1$ (instead of $a$, we can take $a/|a|$) and $a\perp u$, $a\perp v$, $u\perp v$.
Then consider the matrix $M=[u|a|v]$, it will satisfy $M\cdot\begin{bmatrix} 0\\1\\0 \end{bmatrix} = a$, and $M^T=M^{-1}$ and $$x\mapsto M^T (x-b)$$ will take your line $x=t\cdot a+b$ to the $y$-axis, and the inverse transformation is: $$y\mapsto My + b$$
