1 4 VECTRS Chpter 4 Vectors jectives fter studying this chpter you should understnd the difference etween vectors nd sclrs; e le to find the mgnitude nd direction of vector; e le to dd vectors, nd multiply y sclr; pprecite the geometricl representtion of vectors; e le to evlute nd interpret the sclr nd vector products. 4.0 Introduction Some physicl quntities, such s temperture or time, re completely specified y numer given in pproprite units e.g. 20 C, hours. Quntities of this sort, which hve only mgnitude, re referred to s sclrs; wheres quntities for which it is lso necessry to give direction s well s mgnitude re clled vectors. Exmples include wind velocity force displcement. In this text we will print vectors in old type; for exmple,, etc. Unfortuntely, when writing vectors you cnnot distinguish them from sclrs in this wy. The stndrd wy of writing vectors is to underline them; for exmple ~, ~, etc. It is very importnt for you to conform to this nottion. lwys rememer to underline your vectors, otherwise gret confusion will rise! ctivity 1 Mke list of sclr nd vector quntities, distinguishing etween them. 89

2 Chpter 4 Vectors 4.1 Vector representtion vector cn e represented y section of stright line, whose length is equl to the mgnitude of the vector, nd whose direction represents the direction of the vector. ll the lines shown opposite hve the sme mgnitude nd direction, nd so ll represent the sme vector. Sometimes the nottion is used to represent the vector. Modulus The modulus of vector is its mgnitude. It is written s, nd is equl to the length of the line representing the vector. Equl vectors The vectors nd re equl if, nd only if, = nd nd re in the sme direction. How re the vectors shown opposite, = nd = PQ, relted? Q P Since =, nd they re in opposite directions, we sy tht =. Multipliction of vector y sclr If λ is positive rel numer, then λ is vector in the sme direction s nd is of mgnitude λ. If λ = 0, then λ is 2 the zero vector 0, nd if λ < 0 then λ is the vector in the opposite direction to nd of mgnitude λ. Does the definition mke sense when λ = 1? 90

Express vectors c, d, e, f, g nd h in terms of or. 4.2 Vector ddition f e g If the sides nd C of tringle C represent the vectors p nd q, then the third side, C, is defined s the vector sum of p nd q; tht is = p, C = q C = p+ q p q p + q C This definition of vector ddition is referred to s the tringle lw of ddition. You cn then sutrct vectors, for simply mens + ( ). For exmple = C C. s n exmple, consider the displcement vectors.

If M is the midpoint of C, nd N is the midpoint of D, find M nd N in terms of nd, nd hence show tht M nd N re coincident. D C = + C = + so M = 1 ( 2 + ). Similrly, D = + D = + C = +, so N = 1 ( 2 + ) nd N = + N = + 1 ( 2 + ) = = 1 2 ( + ) = M. Since N = M, N nd M must e coincident. 92

However, if =, where is fixed origin, then is referred to s the position vector of, reltive to. Is the position vector unique? The use of position vectors for solving geometry prolems hs lredy een illustrted in the previous section. Here, you will see mny more exmples of this type, ut first n importnt result. Theorem If nd re points with position vectors nd nd point C divides nd in the rtio λ:µ, then C hs position vector µ + λ λ + µ ( ) 93

6 Chpter 4 Vectors Proof If C divides in the rtio λ :µ, then C = λ ( λ + µ )? C (nd C = µ ( λ + µ ) ) Hence since C C = nd λ ( λ + µ ) re in the sme direction. Thus C λ = λ + µ ( ) = λ ( λ + µ ) ( ) nd C = + C = + λ ( λ + µ ) ( ) = ( λ + µ λ )+λ λ +µ ( ) = µ+ λ, s required. ( λ + µ ) Note tht, in the specil cse λ = µ, when C is the midpoint of, then C = 1 ( 2 + ) C nd this result hs lredy een developed in the lst section. Exmple In the tringle, = nd =.

7 Chpter 4 Vectors From the result in the theorem ove C = 2+ 3 = Clerly D = 1 3, so DC = D + C = = 2 3 Since DC is multiple of, it is in the sme direction s ; tht is, DC is prllel to. Exmple In the figure opposite, X nd Y re the midpoints of nd respectively. If = nd = find the position vector of the point Z, the intersection of X nd Y. X Z X = 1 nd Y = Thus X = X + Y = = 1 2 Since Z lies on X, for some sclr numer, sy t, XZ = t X = t 1 2 nd Z = X + XZ = t 1 2 = 1 2 ( 1 t)+t. 95

8 Chpter 4 Vectors Similrly, for some sclr numer s, using the fct tht Z lies on Y gives Z = s+ 1 2 ( 1 s). ut these vectors re equl, so equting coefficients of nd, 1 ( 2 1 t )= s 2s+t =1 t = 1 ( 2 1 s ) s+2t =1 s =t = 1 3. Hence Z = 1 3 ( + ) Exmple 4 1. In the digrm T = 2T = = C = 2 () Find in terms of nd (i) (ii) T (iii) C (iv) T (v) TC. () From (iv) nd (v), wht cn you deduce out, T nd C? 2.

9 Chpter 4 Vectors 4.4 Components of vector In this section, the ide of unit vector is first introduced. This is vector which hs unit mgnitude. So if is ny vector, its mgnitude is, nd (provided tht 0) the vector â = is unit vector, prllel to. Introducing crtesin xes xyz in the usul wy, unit vectors in the direction x, y nd z re represented y z i, j nd k. Suppose P is ny point with coordintes (x, y, z) reltive to s illustrted. i k j y Wht is the mgnitude nd direction of the vector x = xi? Clerly = xi ( = x) x z D nd + = xi+ C = xi+ yj nd + + P = xi+ yj+ D = xi+ yj+ zk Wht is the vector + + P? x P (x, y, z) r k j i C y Thus r= P = xi+ yi+ zk This vector is often written s 3 1 column mtrix x r= y z nd the nottion r= ( x, y, z) is lso sometimes used. 97

10 Chpter 4 Vectors ctivity 4 y For vectors with two dimensions, using unit vector i nd j s shown opposite, express,, c, d nd e in terms of i nd j. j c From the ctivity ove, you should hve shown tht, for exmple, c= i+ jnd e= 2i+ j. Then the vector c+ e is simply 3i+ 2j: dding vectors in form is just mtter of dding components. For vectors in 2 dimensions, in generl r= P = xi+ yj f i d e x nd its mgnitude is given y the length P, where P = x 2 + y 2 r = x 2 + y 2 y y P (x, y) Exmple If = i+ 3j, = 2i 5j, c= 2i+4j, find j x () the component form of the vectors (i) + (ii) + c (iii) (iv) + c (v) 3+ 2; i x () the mgnitude of the vectors in (); (c) unit vectors in the direction of + nd + c.

You cn perform lgeric opertions in the usul wy; for exmple, if thus = 3i+ 2j+ k = i 2j+ k + = ( 3i+ 2 j+ k)+ ( i 2j+k) = 4i+ 2k = ( 3i+ 2 j+ k) ( i 2j+k) = 2i+ 4j = = 14 = ( 2 2 )+1 2 = 6 Note tht two vectors, nd re prllel if = λ for some non-zero λ ; furthermore, if λ > 0 they re ctully in the sme direction. lso note tht two vectors = 1 i+ 2 j+ 3 k nd = 1 i+ 2 j+ 3 k re equl if, nd only if, their components re equl, i.e. 1 = 1, 2 = 2, 3 = 3. 99

(c) c= + (d) d = lso find unit vectors in the direction of nd. 4.5 Products of vectors The 'lger' of vectors hs een developed in previous sections. You cn dd nd sutrct vectors, multiply vector y sclr ( λ), ut s yet not 'multiply' vectors. There re, in fct, two wys of multiplying vectors: one, the sclr product leding to sclr quntity; the other, the vector product, eing vector. Sclr product For ny two vectors nd, the sclr product, denoted y. is defined y. = cosθ Here is the modulus of, is the modulus of, nd θ is the ngle etween the direction of the two vectors. (Some texts refer to the sclr product s the 'dot' product, nd you sy ' dot ' for.) 100
