Hello all,

In this “continuous-form” lecture I will be discussing Vectors and their associated operations. At first we will explore what a vector is and what components are necessary to actual make it a vector. We will cover scalars, Magnitude, Direction Angle, and learn some useful formulas for manipulating vectors to achieve a goal. As I have written, this will be a continuous form lecture in that it will consist of numerous chronological parts. I am trying this approach for a few reasons but mainly because it can keep these Livescribe files short enough to easily view and it will serve to “compartmental-ize” the data so that any un-clear areas or topics can be easily found/viewed without much trouble. as always I hope you enjoy this lecture and invite you to feel free with any questions or comments you may have.

This publication has inspired me to carry on working on my own blog

where ƒ(x, y, z) represents the dependence of amplitude on location and the cosine\sine are the oscillations in time.
