1 Chap.3 HW Questions 3. Equation 3-2 shows that the addition of two vectors b a v v and is commutative. Does that mean subtraction is commutative, so that a b b a v v v v = ? ( ) ( ) a b b a b a v v v v v v = + = - . Answer: NO 7. Which of the arrangements of axes can be labeled “right- handed coordinate system”? As usual, each axis label indicates the positive side of the axis. a ,b ,c, d, f are right handed. e is not right-handed 9. If B v q F v v v × = and v v is perpendicular to B v , then what is the direction of B v in the three situations shown in Figure 3-25 when constant q is (a) positive and (b) negative? Using the RHR (right hand rule) (a): (1) +x, (2) +z, (3) +z; (b) (1) -x, (2) –z (3) –z.
