Unformatted text preview: Fact Sheet for Final Exam Vector parametrization of the line through ( x ,y ,z ) in the direction v = ( a,b,c ): r ( t ) = ( x ,y ,z ) + t ( a,b,c ). The dot product of v = ( a 1 ,b 1 ,c 1 ) and w = ( a 2 ,b 2 ,c 2 ): v w = a 1 ,a 2 + b 1 b 2 + c 1 c 2 . v w = || v |||| w || cos , with the angle between v and w . The orthogonal projection of u on v is proj v ( u ) = u v v v v . The cross product of v = ( a 1 ,b 1 ,c 1 ) and w = ( a 2 ,b 2 ,c 2 ): v w = i j k a 1 b 1 c 1 a 2 b 2 c 2 = b 1 c 1 b 2 c 2 i- a 1 c 1 a 2 c 2 j + a 1 b 1 a 2 b 2 k The area of the parallelogram spanned by v and w is || v w || . The volume of the parallelepiped spanned by u , v and w is | u ( v w ) | . An equation of the plane through ( x ,y ,z ) with normal vector n = ( a,b,c ) can be written in vector form as n ( x- x ,y- y ,z- z ) = 0; in scalar form as ax + by + cz = ax + bx + cz . Let f be a function from R n to R , then the gradient of f is f = ( f x 1 , , f x n )....
