No credit will be given for unsupported answers. Write your solutions clearly and legibly. No credit will be given for illegible solutions. 1. (6 points) Consider the vectors v = h 6 , 2 , - 3 i and w = h- 2 , 2 , 1 i . (a) Find a vector normal to both, v and w . v × w ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ i j k 6 2 - 3 - 2 2 1 ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ = (2 + 6) i - (6 - 6) j + (12 + 4) k = h 8 , 0 , 16 i . A solution is any vector proportional to v × w . For example u = h 1 , 0 , 2 i . (b) Find the area of the parallelogram formed by v and w . A = | v × w | = p 8 2 + 16 2 = p 8 2 (1 + 4) = 8 5 . (c) Find a vector of length one in the direction of v . | v | = 36 + 4 + 9 = 49 = 7 . u = v | v | = 1 7 h 6 , 2 , - 3 i . # Score 1 2 3 4 Σ
