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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
