    vector problem

    Hi all, Please take a look at the attached image of the problem and if someone could explain where the indicated value came from that would be so very helpful. I got everything but not quite sure why the sqrt2 was inserted towards the end.

    Please help me with this vector problem

    Hello, i'm working on an assignment where i have to find the rotation ThetaR around the z axis. I have two vectors lets call them vector a and b Known values are: phi-a, theta- a and phi-b and theta-b but they are arbitary. As you can see in the picture i have to find the rotation around the z...

    Why I always choose vector methods

    Two directed line segments are given in space, direction numbers are a given, find a vector perpendicular to both. Yes, this can be done using the cross product; that's easy. But this can't be done that way. The only knowledge I have are the direction numbers associated with the given line...

    Vector magnitude

    Two forces, each equal to P, act at right angles. Their effect may be neutralized by a third force acting along their bisector in the opposite direction with a magnitude of___________ in this diagram, the resultant vector is the opposite direction, So what should I do the addition of vector or...

    3 vectors and the resultant vector

    I have 3 current vectors of magnitude i/2 120 degrees apart nothing but a 3 phase signal. I want to calculate the resultant vector this is how I approached, I don't know which software to use to draw them, I have used drawio for drawing. My question is the resultant vector is a Null vector. Is...

    Vector assignment

    I'm pretty sure this example is easy to do, but I'm not that good with vectors. You were given square ABCD with side a = 3cm. Point S is center of diagonals. You need to find vectors AD, CA and BS.

    Rotation around Axis(R3) to Rotation around Cartesian-Axes(r1, r2, r3))

    Hello, my problem is as follows: I have the angle between two vectors in R3, lets say it's q. vector1: (v1, v2, v3) vector2: (w1, w2, w3) How can I figure out, how to rotate vector1 around X, then Y, then Z, to create the same rotation as the angle-rotation around vector1's and...

    How to find the rotation vector by deriving the final vector with respect to the disp

    My understanding of a rotation of a vector can be done by using a 2D rotation matrix as shown below, $R(\theta )=\begin{bmatrix}\cos \theta &\sin \theta \\-\sin \theta &\cos \theta \\\end{bmatrix}$. This rotates column vectors by means of the following matrix multiplication...

    How to integrate a vector function?

    I have this \vec{v} = v_0 \cdot \vec{i} - gt \cdot \vec{j} and I want to calculate this: \Delta{x} = \int_{t_o}^{t} \vec{v} \cdot dt But I never saw an integral that has a vector inside it: \Delta{x} = \int_{t_o}^{t} \vec{v} \cdot dt \Leftrightarrow \Delta{x} = \int_{t_o}^{t} (v_0 \cdot...

    Convergence in a normed vector space - Linear operator

    Having X a normed vector space. If f is a linear operator from X to ℝ and is not continuous in 0 (element of X) , how can we show that there exists a sequence xn that converges to 0 for which we have f(xn) = 1 (for all n element of ℕ). Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Need some help with this vector equation

    Write the vector v1= (3, -2) as a linear combination of the vectors v2 = (1, 3) and V3 = (-1, 0). All of the (V)'s have this at the top of it ->. The answers they got were v1 = -2/3v2 - 11/3v3. I am trying to wonder how they came up with that conclusion. Someone please explain it to me. Thank...
