(a) Suppose the points A , B , and C in R 3 are the vertices of a triangle. What is ±±! AB + ±±! BC + ±! CA ? (b) Let r 0 = 3 ; 2 ; ± 2 i . Describe the set of all vectors r with the property that j r ± r 0 j ² 4. (c) Let r 1 = 1 ; 2 i and let r 2 = h 1 ; 0 i . Describe the set of all vectors r with the property that j r ± r 1 j + j r ± r 2 j = 4. (d) (Section 13.3) Let a = h a 1 ;a 2 ;a 3 i , and b = h b 1 ;b 2 ;b 3 i . Show that the set of all vectors r which satisfy ( r ± a ) ³ ( r ± b ) = 0 is a sphere and ²nd its radius.
