- 2. Geometric Vectors Precalculus 8-1 p. 485
- 3. Vectors <ul><li>A vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction . </li></ul>
- 4. Vectors <ul><li>A vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction . </li></ul><ul><li>A vector is represented geometrically by a directed line segment . </li></ul>
- 5. Vectors <ul><li>Magnitude: Length of the vector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For vector a , the magnitude is written | a | </li></ul></ul>
- 6. Vectors <ul><li>Two vectors are equal they have the same direction and magnitude </li></ul>
- 7. Vectors <ul><li>Magnitude: Length of the vector </li></ul><ul><li>Initial: Starting point </li></ul>
- 8. Vectors <ul><li>Magnitude: Length of the vector </li></ul><ul><li>Initial: Starting point </li></ul><ul><li>Terminal: Ending point </li></ul>
- 9. Vectors <ul><li>If a vector has its initial point at the origin , it is in standard position. </li></ul>
- 10. Vectors <ul><li>If a vector has its initial point at the origin, it is in standard position. </li></ul><ul><li>The direction of the vector is the angle between the positive x-axis and the vector. </li></ul>
- 11. Vectors <ul><li>If both the initial point and the terminal point are at the origin, the vector is the zero vector . </li></ul>
- 12. Vectors <ul><li>Resultant: The sum of 2 or more vectors. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Components: The 2 (or more) original vectors. </li></ul></ul>
- 13. Vectors <ul><li>Resultant: The sum of 2 or more vectors. </li></ul><ul><li>Opposites: Two vectors with the same magnitude and opposite directions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Opposite of g is -g </li></ul></ul>
- 14. Vectors <ul><li>Resultant: The sum of 2 or more vectors. </li></ul><ul><li>Opposites: Two vectors with the same magnitude and opposite directions. </li></ul><ul><li>Scalar: A number with no direction (only magnitude). </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiplying a scalar and a vector changes the magnitude of the vector. </li></ul></ul>
- 15. Vectors <ul><li>Resultant: The sum of 2 or more vectors. </li></ul><ul><li>Opposites: Two vectors with the same magnitude and opposite directions. </li></ul><ul><li>Scalar: A number with no direction (only magnitude). </li></ul>
