Equivalent vectors have the same
magnitude and direction
Magnitude is also called
A symbol for Magnitude is
Component form of a vector is
To find component form, you need to remember
Terminal - Initial
To get 2 vectors into one, you...
add them together
To find the magnitude you....
add V1 and U1, and add V2 and U2
A negative scalar....
Reverses the direction of the vector
A vector u in length llull = 1
is a unit vector
Formula to find the unit vector in the direction of v is
v / llvll (vector / magnitude)
If the direction is negative...
add 180 degrees until it's in the correct quadrant!
Direction angle formula
Dot product formula for u . v
V1) + (U2
Vectors orthogonal if they equal
Find parallel by
looking at ratios between components
Space vectors are
(V1, V2, V3)
