Vectors Express all vectors via unit vector notation a = a x ˆ i + a y ˆ j a x = a cos( θ ) a y = a sin( ) a = x 2 + a y 2 tan( ) = y x
Vector Multiplication a b = b a Commutative Law Order does not matter a b = a x b x + a y b y + a z b z A B = | A || B | cos( φ ) Scalar Product “Dot” Product Vector Product “Cross” Product | a × b | = | a || b | sin( ) a × b b × a not commutative a × b = ( a y b z a z b y ) ˆ i + ( a z b x a x b z ) ˆ
