6.3-Vectors in the Plane
Any questions?
This was only a short introduction to vectors. You will see a lot more in future Physics and Engineering classes. Now try these problems:

Vector Basics
Intro to Vectors
Component Form
of a Vector
Example 1
Vector Operations
Unit Vectors
Direction Angles
Vector Operations
Find the component form and magnitude of the vector v that has (1,7) as its initial point and (4,3) as its terminal point.
Example 2
Let u = <1,6> and v = <-4, 2> . Find
a. 3u
b. u + v
In many applications of vectors, it is useful to find a unit vector that has the same direction as a given vector v. To find a unit vector u, divide v by its length.
U is a scalar multiple of v. The vector u has a magnitude of 1 and the same direction of v. The vector u is called a unit vector in the direction of v.
Example 3
Find a unit vector in the direction of v=<-8,6>
Standard Unit Vectors
The unit vectors <1,0> and <0,1> are called the standard unit vectors and are denoted by i = <1,0> and
j = <0,1>.
Example 4 and 5
Ex. 4 - Let v = <-5, 3>. Write v as a linear combination of the standard unit vectors i and j.

Ex. 5 - Let v = 3i - 4j and w = 2i + 9j. Find v + w.
Ex. 4 - Let v = <-5, 3>. Write v as a linear combination of the standard unit vectors i and j.

v = -5i + 3j

Ex. 5 - Let v = 3i - 4j and w = 2i + 9j. Find v + w.

v + w = (3i +2i) + (-4j + 9j) = 5i + 5j
