Chapter 3: VECTORS 1. We say that the displacement of a particle is a vector quantity. Our best justi f cation for this assertion is: A. displacement can be speci f ed by a magnitude and a direction B. operating with displacements according to the rules for manipulating vectors leads to re- sults in agreement with experiments C. a displacement is obviously not a scalar D. displacement can be speci f ed by three numbers E. displacement is associated with motion ans: B 2. The vectors n a , n b , and n c are related by n c = n b n a . Which diagram below illustrates this relationship? ................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ........ n a n b n c A ................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ............................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . n a n b n c B ................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . n a n b n c C ................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ... . . . . . . . n a n b n c D E.

5. A vector n S of magnitude 6 and another vector n T have a sum of magnitude 12. The vector n T : A. must have a magnitude of at least 6 but no more than 18 B. may have a magnitude of 20 C. cannot have a magnitude greater than 12 D. must be perpendicular to n S E. must be perpendicular to the vector sum ans: A 6. The vector n A is: A. greater than n A in magnitude B. less than n A in magnitude C. in the same direction as n A D. in the direction opposite to n A E. perpendicular to n A ans: D 7.
