Pt. 2 How to plot a Vector, Find Magnitude, and Direction Angle

Hello,

Here we will continue deeper into Vectors and actually plot one and discuss the formulas needed reveal the length (magnitude) and Theta (direction angle). I will solve a question by providing a 2d Vector from the given plots and also using the new found Vector to discover it’s length and angle.  It is a very straight forward lecture in this series but none the less important before moving on. If there are any questions please feel free to contact me.

Pt. 1 Vectors and Their Basic Properties

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”┬áthe 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.
