a) proj<2y1,1)(3,2, 1) and perp(2)1,1)(3,2,1).
b) proj(1)170’2)(2, —2, 1, 1) and perp(_171,0,2)(2,—2,1, 1). 2. Use a projection to ﬁnd the distance from the point to the plane.
a) The point P(2, —3, —1) and the plane 2:131 —— 3x2 — 5x3 : 7.
b) The point P(2, 2, 3) and the plane 2x1 + $2 — 4mg 2 5. 3. Calculate the following crossproducts.
a) (2,1,2) >< (1,2,3).
b) (1,2,3) >< (2,1,2). 4. Consider the parallelogram determined by the vectors 6 2 (1, 4) and 21 = (2, 3).
Find the area of the parallelogram by a) using the 2 x 2 determinant. b) putting the vectors into R3 and using the cross—product. 5. Determine the volume of the parallelepiped determined by (1,1,4), (1, 3, 4),
and (—2, 1, —5). 6. Let c? E R3. Prove that projd(perpa(f)) = 6 for any a? E R3. 7. Consider the following statement “If 55 X 17 = :3 x 732 with :3 ;£ 6, then 17 2 11 ”.
Give a proof if the statement is true or a counterexample if the statement is false. Use MATLAB to complete the following questions. You do not need to submit a printout of your work. Simply use MATLAB to solve the problems,
and submit written answers to the questions along with the rest of your assignment. ——————————_._._._.____.______________
Linear Combinations and Properties of Vectors Review the posted MATLAB Introduction before attempting Questions 1 and 2 below. (See the
course webpage in UW—ACE under Content —> MATLAB.) In particular, 0 review how to enter vectors in MATLAB,
0 ﬁgure out how to add vectors together, and
a ﬁgure out how to calculate a scalar multiple of a vector. dot
To ﬁnd the dot product of two vectors in MATLAB, use the dot command. For example, the dot product of vectors a = (4, 3, —1) and b = (—2, 5, 3) can be found as follows: >> a = [4; 3; 1]
>> b = [2; 5; 3]
>> dotCa, b) MATLAB returns that the dot product is 4. IlOI'IIl
To ﬁnd the length of a vector in MATLAB7 use the norm command. For example, the length of a from the previous example can be found as follows: >> norm(a) MATLAB returns that the length of a is 5.0990. —————————————————_—_—_—_—_—_—_— ———————————————____—____ Consider the set of vectors {111,212, . . . ,v7} in R10 below:
121 = (9,—5,2,0,7,5,—1,—9,6,——1)
v2 = (O, —2, —1,0, 3, 3,4, —2,4, 1)
v3 (4, —2, —1,0,3,3,4, —5,8, 1)
v4 = (7,5,12,5,—5,—3,—1,6,——8,4)
v5 — (—1,0,1,0,—1,0,0,0,1,1)
v6 = (0,4,2,0,—6,—6,—8,4,—8,—2)
v7 — (2,678,5, —6, —2,8,8, —2, 7)
Question 1
