Vectors Pt. 6(b.): Resultant Velocities Word Problem

Hello all,

Here we will look into a word problem that requires us to find a new velocity based on a few stated criteria. This W.P. (word problem) is an idealized situation and does not contain all of the real world factors for solving but we can still see some useful data. As always If you need any clarifications or see any mistakes please correct me.

Pt. 5 Vectors: Unit vectors, Standard Vectors, and Linear Combinations

Here we will explore the concept of a Unit vector and some related thoughts. We will go deeper into what a vector is made of and practice an example of both creating a Unit vector and also a linear combination of i and j. As always, enjoy and feel free to give some feedback!

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


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.
