2 PROBLEM 1 Let v = h 1 , 1 , 1 i . Write the vector w = h 3 , 2 , 1 i as a sum w = w || + w where w || is parallel to v and w is perpendicular to v . Solution: We have w || = ± v · w v · v ² v = ³ h 1 , 1 , 1 i·h 1 , 2 , 3 i h 1 , 1 , 1 1 , 1 , 1 i ´ h 1 , 1 , 1 i = h 2 , 2 , 2 i and w = w w || = h 3 , 2 , 1 i−h 2 , 2 , 2 i = h 1 , 0 , 1 i The decomposition with respect to v is w = h 3 , 2 , 1 i = h 2 , 2 , 2 i + h 1 , 0 , 1 i

3 PROBLEM 2 Two vectors v and w (based at the origin) of length 8 lie in the plane 2 x +3 y 4 z =0 The angle between v and w is θ = π/ 6. With this information you can determine the cross product v × w up to a sign. Find a vector u such that v × w = ± u .
