For the three given expressions, therefore, we see that I is well-defined because it is the cross product of two vectors. II is not well-defined because the second term in the cross product is a dot product, hence not a vector.

Here - - P Q = -5, 3, 0 , Consequently, - - - v = P Q P R = 12, 20, 15 is othogonal to the plane through P, Q and R. - P R = -5, 0, 4 . keywords: vector product, cross product, unit vector, orthogonal, 013 10.0 points If a a vector parallel to the xy-plane and b is a vector parallel to k, determine |a b| when |a| = 2 and |b| = 3. 1. |a b| = -3 2. |a b| = 3 3. |a b| = -3 2 4. |a b| = -6 5. |a b| = 3 2 6. |a b| = 6 correct Explanation: 7. |a b| = 0 Mirzoyeva (tim89) assignment 4 luecke (58600) 015 10.0 points 8 Compute the volume of the parallelopiped with adjacent edges OP , OQ, and OR determined by vertices P (4, -4, 2) , Q(3, -1, 2) , R(3, 2, 2) , where O is the origin in 3-space. 1. volume = 3 2. volume = 6 correct 3. volume = 5 4. volume = 4 5. volume = 2 Explanation: The parallelopiped is determined by the vectors - - a = OP = 4, -4, 2 , - - b = OQ = - - c = OR = 3, -1, 2 , 3, 2, 2 . Thus its volume is given in terms of a scalar triple product by vol = |a (b c)| .
