1 1 MAC 2103 Module 4 Vectors in 2-Space and 3-Space I 2 Rev.F09 Learning Objectives In this module, we apply our earlier ideas specifically to vectors in 2-space, 2 , (in the xy-plane) in two dimensions and to vectors in 3-space, 3 ,(in the xyz-space) in three dimensions. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

2 3 Rev.F09 Learning Objectives (Cont.) Upon completing this module, you should be able to: 1. Determine the components of a vector in 2 and 3 . 2. Perform vector addition, subtraction, and scalar multiplication in 2 and 3 . 3. Find the norm of a vector and the distance between points in 2 and 3 . 4. Find the dot product of two vectors in 2 and 3 . 5. Use the dot product to find the angle between two vectors in 2 and 3 . 6. Find the projection of a vector onto another vector in 2 and 3 , and express the original vector as a sum of two orthogonal vectors. 7. Find the distance between a point and a line in 2 and 3 . http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. 4 Rev.09 Vectors in 2 and 3 http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

The direction of the arrow specifies the direction of the vector. A vector that starts from an initial point A and terminates at a point B can be represented as . A vector is usually denoted in lowercase boldface type (like v ) in the textbook or with an arrow above it when we write it by hand. For example: A B A B AB ! " !! v = ! v = AB " ! "" . ! v ! " ! # ! v \$ ! ! 6 Rev.F09 What are Vectors in 2 and 3 ? (Cont.) http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The magnitude of the vector is the length of the vector . The vector of length zero is called the zero vector . Vectors with the same magnitude and same direction are equal to each other.

### What students are saying

• 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.
