**Geometric Vectors**Chapter 8 SEC 1**Vector**• A vector is a quantity that has both direction and magnitude. • It is represented geometrical by a directed line segment. • So a directed line segment with initial point P and terminal point Q denoted by • Direction of the arrowhead show direction. • The length represents the magnitude denoted by . Q P**Vector**• If a vector has it’s initial point at the origin, it is in standard position. • The direction of the vector is the directed angle between the positive x-axis and the vector. • The direction of is 45°. • If both the initial point and the terminal point are at the origin, the vector is the zero vector and is denoted by . • The magnitude is 0 and it can be any direction.**Equal Vectors**• Two vectors are equal if and only if they have the same directionand the same magnitude. • are equal since theyhave same direction and • are equal. • have the same direction but • but they have different directions, so**Resultant Vectors (sum of vectors)**• The sum of two or more vectors is call the resultant of the vectors. The follow will give the resultant:**Example 1**the parallelogram method the triangle method • Find the sum a. Copy then copy placing the initial points together. Form a parallelogram and draw dashed lines for the other two sides. The resultant is the vector from the vertex to the opposite vertex.**Example 1 (cont)**• the parallelogram method • the triangle method • Find the sum b. Copy then copy so the initial point of is on the terminal side of . The resultant is the vector from the initial point of to the terminal point of .**Opposite Vectors**• Two vectors are oppositesif they have the same magnitude and opposite directions. • are opposites, as are • The opposite of • You can use opposite vectorsto subtract vectors.**Scalars**• A quantity with only magnitude is called a scalar quantity. • Mass, time, length and temperature • The numbers used to measure scalar quantities are called scalars. • The product of a scalar k and a vector is a vector with the same direction as and a magnitude of , if k > 0. • If k < 0, the vector has the opposite direction of and a magnitude of**Example 2**Use the triangle method to find Rewrite Draw a vector twice the magnitude of Draw a vector opposite direction and half the magnitude of Put them tip to tail. Connect the initial point from and terminal point of**Parallel**• Two or more vectors are said to be parallel if and only if they have the same or opposite direction. • Two or more vectors whose sum is a given vector are called components of the given resultant vector. • Often it is useful to have components that are perpendicular.**Example 3**• A cruise ship leaves port and sails for 8o miles in a direction of 50° north of due east. Draw a picture and find the magnitude of the vertical and horizontal components.**Algebraic Vectors**Chapter 8 Sec 2**Algebraic Vectors**• Vector can be represented algebraically using ordered pairs of real numbers. • The ordered pair (3, 5) can represent a vector in standard position. Initial pt (0,0) and terminal pt (3,5). • Horizontal Mag. of 3, Vertical Mag. of 5. • Since vector of same mag. and direction are equal many vectors can be represented by the same ordered pair. • In other words, a vector does not have to be in standard position to use ordered pairs**Ordered Pairs …Vectors**• Assume that P1 and P2 are any two points. • Drawing the horizontal and vertical components yields a right triangle. • So, the magnitude can be found by using the Pythagorean Theorem.**Example 1**Write the ordered pair that represents the vector from C(7, – 3) to D(–2, –1). Then find the magnitude of**Vector Operations**• When vectors are represented by ordered pair they can be easily added, subtracted or multiplied by a scalar.**Example 2**Let Find each of the following.**Example 3**Radiology technicians Mary Jones and Joseph Rodriguez are moving a patient on an MRI machine cot. Ms. J is pushing the cot with a force of 120 newtons at 55° with the horizontal, while Mr. R. is pulling the cot with a force of 200 newtons at 40° with the horizontal. What is the magnitude of the force exerted on the cot? SOH CAH TOA 200 n. 120 n. y1 y2 Mr. R. Ms. J. 55° x2 40° x1**Unit Vector**• A vectors with a magnitude of one unit is called a unit vector. • A unit vector in the direction of the x–axis is represented by • A unit vector in the direction of the y–axis is represented by • So, • Any vectors can be expressed as**Example 4**Write as the sum of unit vectors for A(2, –7) and B(–1, 5). First write as an ordered pair. The write as the sum of unit vectors.**Daily Assignment**• Chapter 8 Sections 1 & 2 • Text Book • Pg 491 • #15 – 25 Odd; • Pg 497 • #13 – 41 Odd;
