Question 2 (a) Draw a set of 3D vectors i , j , k in which the x axis points East, the y axis points North and the z axis points upwards . They must be a right handed set of vectors (a) Now draw in the vector a which starts at the origin, has length 2 and points straight upwards. Also draw in the vector b which has length 3 and which points due west. (b) Use the triangle rule in 3D to draw in the vector a + b (d) Write a and b in terms of i , j and k and calculate a + b as a 3D vector HOMEWORK SOLUTIONS 3
