1. Let a = 2 i + k and b = - i + 2 j - 3 k be vectors in R 3 . (a) Compute the orthogonal projection of a on b . Answer : The orthogonal projection p is p = b · a || b || 2 b = - 2 - 3 1 + 4 + 9 b = - 5 14 b = 5 14 i - 5 7 j + 15 14 k . (b) Compute a × b . Answer : a × b = ± ± ± ± ± ± i j k 2 0 1 - 1 2 - 3 ± ± ± ± ± ± = ± ± ± ± 0 1 2 - 3 ± ± ± ± i - ± ± ± ± 2 1 - 1 - 3 ± ± ± ± j + ± ± ± ± 2 0 - 1 2 ± ± ± ± = - 2 i + 5 j + 4 k . 2
