When the ray hits the other mirrors, similar arguments show that these reflections will reverse the signs of the other two coordinates, so the final reflected ray will be (—a1, —a2, 4113) = —a, which is parallel to a. 13.3 The Dot Product ET 12.3 1. (a) a - b is a scalar, and the dot product is defined only for vectors, so (a - b) ~ 0 has no meaning. (b) (a - b) c is a scalar multiple of a vector, so it does have meaning. (c) Both [a] and b - c are scalars, so lal (b - c) is an ordinary product of real numbers, and has meaning. (d) Both a and b + c are vectors, so the dot product a ~ (b + c) has meaning. 7 (e) a - b is a scalar, but c is a vector, and so the two quantities cannot be added and a - b + c has no meaning. (f) |a| is a scalar, and the dot product is defined only for vectors, so lal . (b + c) has no meaning. 2. Let the vectors be a and b. Then by Theorem 3, a . b = lal |b| cos0 = (6)(§) cos g 2 E675 = fl. 3. a ~ b = (“2, g} .

Thus the angle between u and v is 60° and u - v : |u| |v| cos 60° : (1)(1) = Ifw is moved so it has the same initial point as u, we can see that the angle between them is 120° and we have u - w : |u| |w| cos 120O : (1)(1)(*%) : —%. tutti; i . lt‘. mm.-ww..,._m , RY OF SPACE ET CHAPTER 12 i C/ [3 232 CHAPTER 13 VECTORS AND THE GEOMET Iv) can be determined by examining the right triangle formed by u and v. 12. u is a unit vector, so w is also a unit vector, and Since the angle between u and v is 45°, we have (V) = (11] cos 45° 2 Then 11 - v = [11) |v| cos 45° = (1) l?- : Since u and w are orthogonal, u - w : 0. 13.
