Unformatted text preview: moseley (cmm3869) HW08 Gilbert (56380) 1 This print-out should have 15 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Which, if any, of the following A. | PQ | , B. PQ, are representations of vectors when P, Q are points in 3-space? 1. A only 2. both of them 3. neither of them correct 4. B only Explanation: A. FALSE: | PQ | is the length of the line segment PQ . B. FALSE: PQ is the line segment from P to Q . keywords: vectors, scalars, T/F, line segment, displacement vector, length 002 10.0 points Find the vector v having a representation by the directed line segment AB with respect to points A (1 , 3) and B (4 , 5). 1. v = ( 5 , 2 ) 2. v = ( 3 , 8 ) correct 3. v = ( 3 , 8 ) 4. v = ( 3 , 8 ) 5. v = ( 5 , 2 ) 6. v = ( 5 , 2 ) Explanation: Since AB = ( 4 1 , 5 + 3 ) , we see that v = ( 3 , 8 ) . 003 10.0 points When u , v are the displacement vectors u = AP , v = AC , determined by the parallelogram A B C P Q R S O express QP in terms of u and v . 1. QP = 1 2 u v 2. QP = 1 2 v u 3. QP = u + 1 2 v 4. QP = 1 2 u 5. QP = 1 2 v correct 6. QP = 1 2 u + v Explanation: By the parallelogram law for the addition of vectors we see that QP = 1 2 v . moseley (cmm3869) HW08 Gilbert (56380) 2 004 10.0 points Determine a so that the vector u = ( 12 , 9 ) is a linear combination u = a v + b w of vectors v = ( 2 , 2 ) , w = ( 2 , 1 ) . 1. a = 3 correct 2. a = 2 3. a = 3 4. a = 1 5. a = 1 Explanation: Since addition and scalar multiplication of vectors is carried out componentwise, we see that u = ( 12 , 9 ) = a ( 2 , 2 ) + b ( 2 , 1 ) = ( 2 a 2 b, 2 a + b ) . Thus 2 a 2 b = 12 , 2 a + b = 9 . Consequently, after solving these for a we see that a = 3 . keywords: vectors, vector sum, linear combi- nation 005 10.0 points Use vectors in the plane to determine the coordinates of the vertex S of the parallelo- gram shown in P Q R S having vertices P (5 , 2) , Q (10 , 4) , R (12 , 8) ....
