10.6: Vectors in Geometry Expectation:
L1.2.3: Use vectors to represent quantities that have magnitude and direction, interpret direction and magnitude of a vector numerically, and calculate the sum and difference of two vectors. G1.3.2: Know and use the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines and use them to solve problems. Find the area of a triangle with sides a and b and included angle θ using the formula Area = (1/2) a b sin θ . 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Equal Vectors Defn: Two vectors are equal iff they have the same direction and magnitude. u v u = v 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Parallel Vectors Defn: Two vectors are parallel iff they have the same direction. Ex: The wind is blowing from the west at 10 mph with gusts to 20 mph. 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Perpendicular Vectors
Defn: Two vectors are perpendicular iff their directions are at right angles to each other. A plane is flying north at 200 mph and the wind is blowing from the east at 25 mph. 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Opposite Vectors Two vectors are opposite vectors iff their magnitudes are equal, but their directions are opposite. 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Addition of Vectors -combination of forces
ex: two people pushing on the same object. -sum of 2 vectors is called the resultant vector. 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Methods for Addition of Vectors
Ordered Pairs Head to Tail Method Parallelogram Method 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

Ordered Pairs Method u + v = (2,20) (a,b) + (c,d) = (a+c, b+d)
Find u + v if u = (4,8) and v = (-2,12) u + v = (2,20) 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

A plane is flying due west at 150 mph
A plane is flying due west at 150 mph. The wind is pushing the plane 20° south of west at 18 mph. What are the actual speed and direction of the plane? 3rd hour 4/25/06 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry

If a direction is just given in terms of an angle measure, such as a heading of 175°, we need to use a “compass rose.” N W E S 3/25/2017 10.6: Vectors in Geometry
