Topic 7 Vectors and Applications II two dimensional vectors and their algebraic and geometric representation unit vectors resolution of vectors into components acting at right angles to each other operations on vectors including addition and multiplication by a scalar application of vectors in both life-related and purely mathematical situations – velocity and relative velocity

Topic 7 Vectors and Applications II

Investigation At 10:05 am, Wal Taylor took off in his helicopter from Dogwood Homestead. He and his son were making a routine inspection of part of the property and hoping to locate a mob of cattle they had not seen for a while. They were carrying enough fuel to fly for about three hours. Soon after take-off, Wal called his wife on the radio. At 10:22, Liz lost contact. This concerned her because they could normally call from anywhere on the 350 000 hectare property. At 2 pm, Wal had not returned. Liz contacted the police to commence search and rescue operations. To make things difficult, Wal had not told Liz where he was heading, but she knew that he normally flew at about 120 km/h

Liz got out a map of the property. She marked in Wals possible locations, assuming that he flew in a straight line and crashed as soon as radio contact was lost.

Liz got out a map of the property. She marked in Wals possible locations, assuming that he flew in a straight line and crashed as soon as radio contact was lost. Mark these locations on your copy of the map.

Unknown to Liz, a jilleroo named Kate, working in a paddock near the house, had seen Wal fly over in a north-easterly direction just after 10 am. When she got back to her quarters, she heard that he had crashed but not at what time. Kate got her map of the property and marked the possible locations of the crash site assuming that the helicopter flew in a straight line until going down.

Liz had one bit of information – the estimated distance of the crash from the house. Kate had one bit of information – the direction of the crash from the house. Later that day, Kate went over to the house to see if she could help. When they put the two maps together, they knew where to search.

Liz contacted Search and Rescue who then found the helicopter before dark. Both men were injured but alive.

On another day, Kate rode out to a point whose displacement from the homestead was (59 km, 337 o T)

Later in the week, Kate rode from the homestead to Marcoo No. 1 Bore. What was her displacement from the homestead ?

The magnitude of her displacement was 47 km and the direction was 157 o T

Suppose a visitor landed at the homestead and asked where Garrad Bore was. One way to tell him would be to give the displacement vector from the homestead to the bore i.e. (25 km, 007 o T)

Alternatively, you could say Go east for 3 km and then go north for 24.8 km i.e. 3 i + 24.8 j

Model: Show the following displacements on the same set of axes: (a) 3m east (b) 2m north (c) 6m south-west (a) (b) (c)

Model: Show the following displacements on the same set of axes: (a) 3m, 30 o (b) 2m,150 o (c) 5m, 300 o (a) (b) (c)

Model: Convert (6, 30 o ) to component form. 6 30

Model: Convert (6, 30 o ) to component form. 30 6 a b a = 6 cos 30 = 3 3 b = 6 sin 30 = 3 (6, 30 o ) = (3 3, 3)

θ tan θ = 5/3 θ = tan -1 (5/3) = 59 o r = (3 2 + 5 2 ) = 34 (34, -121 o ) r = 180 – 59 = 121
