# Find the Bounding Rectangle of Rotated Rectangle

I have rectangle with co-ordinates(x1,y1) and (x2,y2) and I have to rotate the rectangle an amount of θ about it centre using Rotation Matrix

 |  cosθ  sinθ |
| -sinθ  cosθ |


I need to find the co-ordinates of bounding rectangle after rotation.

Before rotation

Is there any general equation for finding the co-ordinates of bounding rectangle?.

Thanks....

For each of the four original corners: $$(x_1,y_1), (x_1,y_2), (x_2,y_1), (x_2,y_2)$$ use the rotation matrix to obtain four new corners. Then to obtain the two ordered pairs that define your bounding rectangle, let one ordered pair have the minimum $x$ and $y$ values out of all the new corners and let the other ordered pair have the maximum $x$ and $y$ values.
