Quantities that we measure that have magnitude but not direction are called scalars . Quantities such as force, displacement or velocity that have direction as well as magnitude are represented by directed line segments . A B initial point terminal point AB uuu v The length is AB uuu v

A B initial point terminal point AB uuu v A vector is represented by a directed line segment. Vectors are equal if they have the same length and direction (same slope).

The angle between two vectors is given by: 1 1 1 2 2 cos u v u v θ - + = υ ω This comes from the law of cosines.

The dot product (also called inner product ) is defined as: 1 1 2 2 cos u v u v θ × = = + υ ω υ ω Read “u dot v” Example: 3,4 5,2 × ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 3 5 4 2 = + 23 =

The dot product (also called inner product ) is defined as: 1 1 2 2 cos u v u v θ × = = + υ ω υ ω This could be substituted in the formula for the angle between vectors (or solved for theta) to give: 1 cos - × = ÷ ÷ υ ω υ ω
