(a) Within this system a plane is spanned by the vectors vectora and vector b , spec ified by: vectora = 16 vectore y 15 vectore x vector b = 20 vectore z 15 vectore x Determine the unit normal to this plane (vector with length 1 per pendicular to the plane). Why is the solution not unique? (b) In addition the following vectors vector b , vector c en vector d are defined: vector b = 3 vectore x + 2 vectore y vector c = 5 vectore x vectore z vector d = vectore x + vectore z Express ( vector bvector c ) vector d in the basis vectors { vectore x ,vectore y ,vectore z } , where ( vector bvector c ) is the dyadic product of the vectors vector b and vector c . 1 2 Extra exercises of chapter 1 1.2 Answers 1 .1(a) vectorn = (0 . 64 vectore x + 0 . 6 vectore y + 0 . 48 vectore z ) The solution is not unique; the normal can be oriented in two op posite directions. (b) ( vector bvector c ) vector d = 12 vectore x + 8 vectore y 2 Extra exercises of chapter 2 3 3 Extra exercises of chapter 3 3.1 Exercises 3 .1 A board with length 6 a is fixed to the wall in point A with a hinge. The board is able to rotate freely around the joint. In a point B at a distance 3 a of A, the board is kept in horizontal position by means of a cable, tied to the board in B and fixed to the rigid wall in point C. The mass of the board is M P (see figure). Cable and board can be assumed to be rigid (undeformable) structures. A box, with length 2 a and mass M K is placed on the board. The front of the box is exactly placed at the front edge of the board. The gravitation acceleration is g . 3a 2a 4a A B C a Fig. 3.1.
