Basis n in R 3 a basis is a set of 3 non-parallel vectors n common to use orthonormal basis u basis vectors are mutually orthogonal u basis vectors have unit magnitude n basis most students are familiar with [] [] [] 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 = = = = = = = = = k j i k j k i j i k j i T T T H H H H H H H H H H H H Direction (cont) n can write any vector as a linear combination of basis vectors k j i H H H 7 2 3 7 2 3 + + = ú ú ú û ù ê ê ê ë é
