Unformatted text preview: Physics 21 Problem Set 2 Harry Nelson due Monday, January 22, In Class Course Info: These problems pertain to the second week lectures, and the corresponding reading is pp. 11-18 and 39-45 of K&K. 1. K&K 1.8 2. K&K 1.11. Add the following: (a) Explicitly construct a unit vector called b from the vector B of the previous problem. (b) Use the A from that problem to explicitly evaluate the vector V 1 = ( A b ) b (c) Repeat for the vector V 2 = ( b A ) b (d) Explicitly add the components to find V 1 + V 2 . Do you get the expected result? (e) Explicitly use the components to evaluate B V 2 . Do you get the expected result? 3. Isaac uses a certain x- y coordinate system to describes vectors in a plane, but Albert insists on using a different coordinate system, x- y . Isaacs origin is the same as Alberts, but Alberts system is rotated by = 30 counterclockwise relative to Isaacs....
