I dont know how to solve problems 6 and 7. Please help!
HOMEWORK PROBLEMS Week 1: Due Friday 18 January 1. A straight line AB is drawn between the two points A ( 5 , - 2 , 8 ) and B ( - 3 , 5 , 0 ) in Cartesian coordinates Oxyz , where the coordinates are measured in meters. (i) Find the length of the line AB . (ii) Express the relative position vector r AB as a Cartesian vector. (iii) Find the Cartesian form of the unit vector in the direction AB . (iv) Find the angle between the line AB and the positive x - axis. (v) A force of 200 N acts along the line AB . What is its component in the positive z - direction? 2. In Figure 2, ADB is a straight line and the length AD = 3 m. Find a Cartesian position vector defining the point D and hence find the Cartesian description of the unit vector e CD defining the direction of the line CD .
