Can you add three unit vectors to get a unit vector ?

the coordinate axes ?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

yes, taking three unit vectors as i , -i and j it sums up to be j which is a unit vector.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

so the four different vectors can be

vec(B) = 3i-4j , -3i+4j, -3i-4j , 5k

Can a vector have zero component along a line and still

have nonzero magnitude ?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Yes.

For example = 2i +0j

has magnitude of 2 along x direction.

Can we have physical quantities having magnitude and

direction which are not vectors ?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

No. A physical quantity having both magnitude and direction need not be considered a vector. For example, despite having magnitude and direction, current is a scalar quantity.

Two nonzero vectors are perpendicular, or orthogonal, if and only if their dot product is

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Is it possible to add two vectors of unequal magnitudes

and get zero ?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

No.

Let the two vectors you want to add be A→ and B→.

We want A→+B→=0

So, A→=0→−B→

which means A→=−B→

Taking the magnitudes

|A→|=|−B→

So,|A→|=|B→|

This means the two vectors have to be equal in magnitude and opposite in direction in order to cancel out.

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Is a vector necessarily changed if it is rotated through

an angle ?

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Yes. A vector is defined by its magnitude and direction, so a vector can be changed by changing its magnitude and direction. If we rotate it through an angle, its direction changes and we can say that the vector has changed.
