vector u is a unit vector if = 1. In other words, a unit vector is
any vector with unit length. The standard unit vectors in R” are
the vectors with one component equal 1 and all others components
equal zero. For example, in R3, the standard unit vectors are i: (1,0,0), j: (0,1,0), k: (0,0,1) Examples: F09. W." snows unit utctots A2E

See page 147 in text for the determinant form of cross product using the standard unit vectors, and how to get the direction of the cross
product from the “right—hand rule”. Dr. Doom Lin Alg MATHl850/2050 Sections 3.45 Page 4 of 7 Theorem 3.4.3: Area of a Parallelogram. If u and V are
vectors in R3, then Hu >< vH is equal to the area of the parallelogram
determined by u and V. This gives a geometric interpretation for the cross product. See page

3Space Planes in 3Space. A line in R2 can be speciﬁed by giving its
slope and one of its points. Similarly, one can specify a plane in R3 by
giving its inclination and specifying one of it’s points. A convenient
method for describing the inclination of a plane is to specify a nonzero
vector, called a normal, that is perpendicular to the plane. Suppose we want to ﬁnd the equation of the plane passing through the
point X0 = (500, yo, ZQ) and having the nonzero vector r1 = (a, b, c) as
normal. Then, the plane that we want consists of the points (50, y, z)
such that the vector (50 — :60, y — yo, z — ZQ) is orthogonal to the
normal vector r1. That is, the plane can be described as: n°($_$07y_y07Z_Z0):O "‘*°'l°“‘\°’cz°

we did Chapter 1). Lines in 3Space. Suppose that l is the line in R3 through the
point X0 = (:60, yo, zo) and parallel to a nonzero vector V = (a, b, c).
The line I consists of those points (56, y, z) for which (a: — 560, y —
yo, z — zo) is parallel to V. That is7 for which there is a scalar t such
that (a: — :60, y — yo, z — ZQ) = tv 2 (ta, 1519, 750) If we write this out in parametric form7 we have (x ‘5 Z ) x=x0+ta, y=y0+tb, z=z0+tc
