KNES300 Practice Problem Set 1 Dr. Timothy Judkins For the given pairs of vectors a v , solve for the following (assume x and: a) b a v v + , give magnitude and direction (in degrees) b) b a v v , give magnitude and direction (in degrees) c) b a v v d) b a v v × , specify if the vector points into or out of the paper 1. j i a v v v 5 3 + = , j i b v v v 1 2 + = 2. () 2 , 3 = a v , () 9 , 4 = b v 3. 4 = x a , 4 = y a , 5 = x b , 9 = y b 4. Magnitude of a is 5, direction of a is -30 degrees Magnitude of b is 7, direction of b is -15 degrees 5. () ° = 90 , 2 a v , () ° = 45 , 3 b v 6. () rad 1 , 2 = a v , () rad , 5 π = b v 7. Vector a : r =5, θ =140º Vector b : r =10, θ =-170º 8. 1 = r a , 2 / θ = a , 2 = x b , 3 = y b Solve the following problems. 9. Find the length of a 90º arc with a radius of 2 m. 10. A runner runs counterclockwise around a circular track. The length of the track from start to finish (around the track and back to the start) is 400 m. The runner completes one lap in 60 sec (assume constant speed). a. What is the runner’s displacement when the runner reaches a distance of 200 m?
