i am trying to figure these out but my answer are marked wrong.
my teacher wont explain it to me.
according to my textbook the projvu= [ (u dot v)/(v dot v) ] times v
consider the vectors u and v shown below
a) sketch projuv
this would be the projection of v onto u
my answer was the red vector below
b) sketch u-projvu
i put this as the answer and the teacher said that it wasn't completely wrong but there's something missing
c) determine the exact value of (u-projvu) dotted with v. show work.
i have no idea what to do here. i know that the projection of u onto v = [ (u dot v)/(v dot v) ] times v
but i dont know what to do after thathttp://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...isc/pencil.png
It may make a little more sense if you write it like this:
