Forces Friction - acts against a motion in the opposite direction of normal force. Static Friction -always positive, between objects not yet in motion. It exerts force on your feet in the direction of your motion. Kinetic Friction - between objects in motion. Vectors and Scalars Length of arrow denotes magnitude. Orientation denotes direction. Operations - v + v = v s*v = v Dot product - v*v = s -The scalar product measures the colinearity of 2 vectors, which is how much one lies along the other. Parallel: AB, Anti-Parallel: -AB, Perpendicular: 0 Cross product - v x v = v The cross product measures the perpendicularity of 2 vectors. -Right-hand rule -Into and out of the page Parallel: 0, Anti-Parallel: 0, Perpendicular: AB Unit Vectors- <1,1,1> Dot product of two unit vectors = 1 Dot product of unit vector and vector A= 0 Cross product of two unit vectors = 0 Cross product of unit and vector A= B Vector Components Uniform Circular motion - when a particle moves in a circle at a constant speed.

    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.
