Question

When the magnitude of a vector is calculated, which notation is used? This ( || || ) or this ( | | )? Please provide an example

Answer #1

Now an important point to be noted if you are given an one dimensional vector then norm is applied.

So modulus is applicable to scalars only.

Determine the magnitude of the resultant vector when you add the
following four vectors: Vector A has a magnitude of 13.0 m and is
directed 20.0° above the -x axis, vector B has a magnitude of 11.0
m and is directed in the +y direction, vector C has a magnitude of
12.0 m and is directed 35.0° below the -x axis, and vector D has a
magnitude of 28.0 m and is directed 50.0° below the +x axis.

Given the vectors in unit vector notation:
A=(-3.0m)i+(4.0m)j
B=(4.0m)i+(-7.0m)j
Calculate the magnitude and the directional angle of the resultant
of r=a+b with respect to the + x axis.

A vector F with magnitude 5 units is
resolved into two
components, one of which is right angle to F and equal in
magnitude to it. Calculate the magnitude of the other component
(round answer to 1 decimal place)

Two vectors A and B at a point are added together. Vector A has
a magnitude of 47 N at 0o and vector B has a magnitude of 62 N at
35o. Which of the following statements correctly describes the
resultant vector?

You are given a vector in the xy plane that has a magnitude of
83.0 units and a y component of -68.0 units.
What are the two possibilities for its x component? X1,X2 =
47.6, -47.6
Assuming the x component is known to be positive, specify the
magnitude of the vector which, if you add it to the original one,
would give a resultant vector that is 80.0 units long and points
entirely in the -x direction. (V=?)

(c) What is the component of a along the direction of b?
(d) What is the component of a perpendicular to the direction of
b but in the plane of a and b?
