Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 5) 2.0 points Consider vectors ~ A and ~ B such that ~ A = h 200 ,- 200 ,- 300 i and ~ B = h- 300 , 500 , 300 i . Find ~ A + ~ B . 1. h- 100 , 300 , i correct 2. h- 100 , 200 ,- 100 i 3. h 200 , 100 ,- 200 i 4. h 300 , , 100 i 5. h 200 , 300 , 200 i Explanation: To add vectors, we add respective compo- nents: A x + B x = 200 + (- 300) =- 100 , A y + B y =- 200 + 500 = 300 , and A z + B z =- 300 + 300 = 0 , so ~ A + ~ B = h A x + B x , A y + B y , A z + B z i = h- 100 , 300 , i . 002 (part 2 of 5) 2.0 points Find ~ A + ~ B . Correct answer: 316 . 228. Explanation: The magnitude of ~ A + ~ B is ~ A + ~ B = q ( A x + B x ) 2 +( A y + B y ) 2 +( A z + B z ) 2 = q (- 100) 2 + (300) 2 + (0) 2 = 316 . 228 . 003 (part 3 of 5) 2.0 points Find ~ A . Correct answer: 412 . 311. Explanation: We follow the same procedure as for the previous part of the problem. ~ A = q A 2 x + A 2 y + A 2 z = q (200) 2 + (- 200) 2 + (- 300) 2 = 412 . 311 . 004 (part 4 of 5) 2.0 points Find ~ B . Correct answer: 655 . 744. Explanation: We follow the same procedure again. ~ B = q B 2 x + B 2 y + B 2 z = q (- 300) 2 + (500) 2 + (300) 2 = 655 . 744 . 005 (part 5 of 5) 2.0 points Find ~ A + ~ B . Correct answer: 1068 . 05. Explanation: Here we simply add the values we obtained in parts 3 and 4: ~ A + ~ B = 412 . 311 + 655 . 744 = 1068 . 05 . 006 10.0 points Consider the following figure: pasha (sep635) HW#1-1 Antoniewicz (56445) 2 ~ t ~ r ~ s Which of the following statements about the three vectors in the figure are correct? List all that apply, separated by commas. A ~ s = ~ t- ~ r B ~ r = ~ t- ~ s C ~ r + ~ t = ~ s D ~ s + ~ t = ~ r E ~ r + ~ s = ~ t Correct answer: A, B, E. Explanation: Vector subtraction can be tricky. Just as one way to subtract scalar quantities is to add the negative of the number being subtracted ( i.e. , instead of 5- 3 = 2 we could write 5 + (- 3) = 2), we can do the same with vectors. We start by writing down the first vector. For option A , the first vector in the subtraction is ~ t , so we draw it: ~ t Then, we add the negative of the vector being subtracted. When we write down- ~ r , it will be pointing in the opposite direction from ~ r . We place- ~ r s starting point at the tip of ~ t , and from here, we are simply adding vectors: ~ t ~ s- ~ r Notice that the resultant vector, ~ s , is ex- actly the same as the original ~ s in the figure we started with. So ~ t + (- ~ r ) = ~ t- ~ r = ~ s, and option A is true. Following the same procedure for the re- maining options, we can determine that A , B , and E are true statements, while the oth- ers are false....
