Hi
i need help on the following questions:
1)if a=4i + 3j - k, b= 2i - 4j +3k, c = 2i +k find 1.5c - b +0.5a:
Now the answer says its 3i+(11/2)j-2k, however i don't understand how they got this.
2)In moving a crate of electrical fittings, a force F of magnitude 84 newton is applied in the direction of b, where b=3i-2j+6k
If the create is moved point A(-2, -1, 1) to the point B(1,1,2) measured in meters, find the work done.
i problem i have is what is the force? is it 84 or is it b=3i-2j+6k?
3) The angle between x and y is arcos (4/21). Find the scalar t given that:
and
Lastly just a side question from vectors, how would covert 1.11m/s into minutes and seconds?
P.S
I've shown you why. Use Pythagoras on it and work out the magnitude of . Its magnitude is .
A vector has magnitude and direction. Like I said, is a vector with a magnitude of and in the DIRECTION of . DOES NOT EQUAL . It is a SCALAR MULTIPLE of . (In other words it goes in the same direction but has been magnified to a different length). You need to figure out the magnification factor so you can multiply it by and thus FIND .
