Unformatted text preview: homework 05 – FIERRO, JEFFREY – Due: Feb 1 2008, 11:00 pm 1 Question 1, chap 3, sect 4. part 1 of 3 10 points Consider two vectors vector A and vector B shown on the following isometric diagram: A B x y z On this diagram, the coordinate axes x , y , and z are shown as blue lines with ticks, each tick denoting one unit of distance. The vectors vector A and vector B are shown as black lines with arrow; both vectors begin at the origin of the coor- dinate system. The green dotted lines help locate the end points of vectors in 3D. For each vector, one dotted line is horizontal and projects onto the z components of the vector; the other dotted line is vertical and projects onto the green dot in the ( x, y ) plane, from which two more dotted line project onto the x and y components of the vector. Find the vertical component of vector A × vector B . Correct answer: 12 units 2 (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: See Eq. 2 in the next part. ( vector A × vector B ) z = bracketleftBig A x B y − A y B x bracketrightBig ˆ k = bracketleftBig (5 units) (4 units) − ( − 4 units) ( − 2 units) bracketrightBig ˆ k = 12 units 2 ˆ k . Question 2, chap 3, sect 4. part 2 of 3 10 points What is the magnitude of the vector prod- uct of these two vectors? Correct answer: 32 . 0624 units 2 (tolerance ± 1 %).
