Unformatted text preview: Vector Algebra A set of vectors S {u1 , u 2 , , u n } is said to linearly dependent if we can find scalars a1 , a 2 , , a n , not all of them zero, such that a1 u1 a 2 u 2 a n u n 0. If a1 a 2 a n 0, then the set is linearly independent. Geometrically, if three vectors are not in the same plane, they are independent and if three vectors u1 , u 2 , u 3 are in the same plane, they are dependent. A sequence of vectors is either dependent or independent. They can be combined to give the zero vector. We begin with some small examples in R 2 : (a) The vectors (1,0) and (0,1) are independent. (b) The vectors (1,0) and (1,0.00001) are independent. (c) The vectors (1,1) and (-1, -1) are dependent. (d) The vectors (1,1) and (0,0) are dependent because of the zero vector. (e) In R 2 , any three vectors (a, b), and (c, d) and (e, f) are dependent. Any set of n vectors in R m must be linearly dependent if n > m. Geometrically, since the points (1,1) and (-1,-1) are on the same line through the origin, so that they are dependent. Let u be a vector and a scalar. Then the product u is defined to be a vector parallel to u and whose length is times the length of u . In this case, the vector u and u are linearly dependent. Remark: Two vectors u and v are linearly dependent if one of them is a multiple of the other. Theorem: If u , v, w be position vectors of the points A,B,C, respectively and if there are nonzero scalars x , y , z for which xu y v z w 0 with x y z 0, then the points A,B,C are collinear. Let there be four vectors u1 , u 2 , u 3 , u 4 in R 3 which are linearly dependent. Then any one of them, say, u 4 can be expressed as a linear combination of u1 , u 2 , u 3 : u 4 x1 u1 x 2 u 2 x3 u 3 , where x1 , x 2 , x3 are scalars (not all of them zero). Problems 1. Show that the three vector u 2iˆ ˆj 3kˆ, v iˆ 4kˆ and w 4iˆ 3 ˆj kˆ are linearly dependent. Determine a relation among them and show that the terminal points are collinear. Solution: Write the given vectors in the form as u ( 2,1, 3) , v (1,0, 4) and w ( 4,3, 1) . Now write xu y v z w (0,0,0) for scalars x , y, z . x( 2,1, 3) y (1,0, 4) z ( 4,3, 1) (0,0,0) So that 2 x y 4 z 0, x 3 z 0 and 3 x 4 y z 0 . Now reduce the system by Gaussian elimination: 2 2 x y 4 z 0 x 3 z 0 3 x 4 y z 0 x 3 z 0 2 x y 4 z 0 3 x 4 y z 0 x 3 z 0 y 2 z 0 4 y 8 z 0 x 3 z 0 y 2 z 0 In the reduced system (last system), the leading variables are x,y while z is the nonleading (free) variable. So the system has infinitely many nonzero solutions. Setting z 1, we get y 2 and x 3 . Since we now have xu y v z w (0,0,0) and x y z 0, the terminal points are collinear. Finally, write w u v for nonzero scalars , . Then we have ( 4,3, 1) ( 2,1, 3) (1,0, 4) and 3 4 1 Solving them we get Hence, we can write 2 4 , 3, 3, and 2 . w 3u 2v . 2. Write down the geometrical interpretation of dot product and cross product of vectors. 3. Consider the position vectors OA 4i 5 j k , OB ( j k ), OC 3i 9 j 4k and OD 4i 4 j 4k . Determine whether the terminal points of the vectors are coplanar or not. Or, Show that the four points 4i 5 j k , ( j k ), 3i 9 j 4k and 4i 4 j 4k are coplanar. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
