Alternatively, we can use the definition ab = i -2 -2 -3 -2 j -3 -2 k -1 -3 -1 j -3 j j = 0, k k = 0. j k = i, k i = j, 6. a b = 8i - 3j - 3k 5. a b = 5, 6, -8 6. a b = 4, -1, -7 Explanation: By definition i j -2 -1 -1 3 k -2 2 -2 -2 j+ -1 2 -1 k. 3 ab = -1 3 = -2 -2 i- -1 2 Consequently, a b = 4, 6, -7 . keywords: vectors, cross product 010 10.0 points Find the value of f (-2) when f (x) = -3 3 2 -3 x2 + 2 -3 -3 3 x. = -2 -1 i- -2 -3 + -2 -2 1. f (-2) = 20 2. f (-2) = 16 3. f (-2) = 14 4. f (-2) = 12 5. f (-2) = 18 correct Explanation: -3 k -2 to determine a b. 009 10.0 points Find the cross product of the vectors a = -2, -1, -2 , b = -1, 3, 2 . patino (mp25752) Assignment4 luecke (57510) For any 2 2 determinant a c Thus f (x) = -3 3 2 -3 x2 + 2 -3 -3 3 x b d = ad - bc . 6 The cross product is defined only for two vectors, and its value is a vector; on the other hand, the dot product is defined only for two vectors, and its value is a scalar. For the three given expressions, therefore, we see that I is well-defined because it is the dot product of two vectors. II is not well-defined because each term in the cross product is a dot product, hence a scalar.
