(a) a = h 2 , 4 , 8 i and b = h 3 , 6 , 12 i . (b) a = h 1 , 2 , 4 i and b = h 2 , 3 , 1 i . (c) a = h cos t, sin t, 3 i and b = h cos t, sin t, 1 i . Answer: (a) a Â· b = 126, a Ã— b = ~ 0, proj a b = h 3 , 6 , 12 i , and comp a b = 3 âˆš 21. The vectors are parallel. (b) a Â· b = 0, a Ã— b = h 14 , 7 , 7 i , proj a b = ~ 0, and comp a b = 0. The vectors are perpendicular. (c) a Â· b = 2, a Ã— b = h 4sin t, 4cos t, i , proj a b = 1 5 h cos t, sin t, 3 i , and comp a b = 2 âˆš 10 . 2. Find the angle between a diagonal of a cube and a diagonal of one of its faces. Answer: For the sake of simplicity, let the cube be of length 1 and with sides parallel to the axes. Then the diagonal of one of the faces is h 1 , 1 , i and the diagonal of the cube is h 1 , 1 , 1 i . Thus, the angle between them is cos 1 q 2 3 â‰ˆ . 615 radians or 35...
