1 7-4 lgebraic Vectors 531 SECTIN 7-4 lgebraic Vectors From Geometric Vectors to lgebraic Vectors Vector ddition and Scalar Multiplication Unit Vectors lgebraic Properties Static Equilibrium Geometric vectors in a plane are readil generalized to three-dimensional space. However, to generalize vectors further to higher-dimensional abstract spaces, it is essential to define the vector concept algebraicall. This is done in such a wa that the geometric vectors become special cases of the more general algebraic vectors. lgebraic vectors have man advantages over geometric vectors. ne advantage will become apparent when we consider static equilibrium problems at the end of the section. The development of algebraic vectors in this book is introductor in nature and is restricted to the plane. Further stud of vectors in three- and higher-dimensional spaces is reserved for more advanced mathematical courses. From Geometric Vectors to lgebraic Vectors The transition from geometric vectors to algebraic vectors is begun b placing geometric vectors in a rectangular coordinate sstem. geometric vector in a rectangular coordinate sstem translated so that its initial point is at the origin is said to be in standard position. The vector P such that P is said to be the standard vector for (see Fig. 1). Note that the vector P in Figure 1 is the standard vector for infinitel man vectors all vectors with the same magnitude and direction as P. P Standard vector FIGURE 1 P is the standard vector for. EXPLRE-DISCUSS 1 () In a cop of Figure 1, draw in three other vectors having P as their standard vector. () If the tail of a vector is at point ( 3, 2) and its tip is at (6, 4), discuss how ou would find the coordinates of P so that P is the standard vector for. Given the coordinates of the endpoints of a geometric vector in a rectangular coordinate sstem, how do we find its corresponding standard vector? The process is not difficult. The coordinates of the initial point,, of P are alwas (0, 0). Thus, we have onl to find the coordinates of P, the terminal point of P. The coordinates of P are given b ( p, p ) ( b a, b a ) (1)

2 532 7 dditional Topics in Trigonometr where the coordinates of are ( a, a ) and the coordinates of are ( b, b ). Eample 1 illustrates the use of equation (1). EXMPLE 1 Finding a Standard Vector for a Given Vector Standard vector FIGURE 2 Solution (3, 4) (7, 1) P(4, 5) Given the geometric vector with initial point (3, 4) and terminal point (7, 1), find the standard vector P for. That is, find the coordinates of the point P such that P. The coordinates of P are given b ( p, p ) ( b a, b a ) (7 3, 1 4) (4, 5) Note in Figure 2 that if we start at, then move to the right 4 units and down 5 units, we will be at. If we start at the origin, then move to the right 4 units and down 5 units, we will be at P. Matched Problem 1 Given the geometric vector with initial point (8, 3) and terminal point (4, 5), find the standard vector P for. P(a, b) v a, b FIGURE 3 lgebraic vector a, b associated with a geometric vector P. The preceding discussion suggests another wa of looking at vectors. Since, given an geometric vector in a rectangular coordinate sstem, there alwas eists a point P( p, p ) such that P, the point P( p, p ) completel specifies the vector, ecept for its position. nd we are not concerned about its position because we are free to translate anwhere we please. Conversel, given an point P( p, p ) in a rectangular coordinate sstem, the directed line segment joining to P forms the geometric vector P. This leads us to define an algebraic vector as an ordered pair of real numbers. To avoid confusing a point (a, b) with a vector (a, b), we use a, b to represent an algebraic vector. Geometricall, the algebraic vector a, b corresponds to the standard (geometric) vector P with terminal point P(a, b) and initial point (0, 0), as illustrated in Figure 3. The real numbers a and b are scalar components of the vector a, b. The word scalar means real number and is often used in the contet of vectors where one refers to scalar quantities as opposed to vector quantities. Thus, we talk about scalar components and vector components of a given vector. The words scalar and vector are often dropped if the meaning of component is clear from the contet. Two vectors u a, b and v c, d are said to be equal if their corresponding components are equal, that is, if a c and b d. The zero vector is denoted b 0 0, 0. Geometric vectors are limited to spaces we can visualize, that is, to two- and three-dimensional spaces. lgebraic vectors do not have these restrictions. The following are algebraic vectors from two-, three-, four-, and five-dimensional spaces:

We now define the magnitude of an algebraic vector: DEFINITIN 1 Magnitude of v a, b The magnitude, or norm, of a vector v a, b is denoted b v and is given b P(a, b) v a 2 b 2 v a 2 b 2 FIGURE 4 Magnitude of vector a, b geometricall interpreted. Geometricall, a 2 b 2 is the length of the standard geometric vector P associated with the algebraic vector a, b (see Fig. 4). The definition of magnitude is readil generalized to higher-dimensional vector spaces. For eample, if v a, b, c, d, then the magnitude, or norm, is given b a 2 b 2 c 2 d 2. ut now we are not able to interpret the result in terms of geometric vectors. EXMPLE 2 Finding the Magnitude of a Vector Find the magnitude of the vector v 3, 5. Solution v 3 2 ( 5) 2 34 Matched Problem 2 Find the magnitude of the vector v 2, 4. Vector ddition and Scalar Multiplication To add two algebraic vectors, add the corresponding components as indicated in the following definition of addition: DEFINITIN 2 Vector ddition If u a, b and v c, d, then u v a c, b d The definition of addition of algebraic vectors is consistent with the parallelogram and tail-to-tip definitions for adding geometric vectors given in Section 7-3 (see Eplore-Discuss 2).

Locate u, v, and u v in a rectangular coordinate sstem and interpret geometricall in terms of the parallelogram and tail-to-tip rules discussed in the last section. To multipl a vector b a scalar (a real number) multipl each component b the scalar: DEFINITIN 3 Scalar Multiplication If u a, b and k is a scalar, then ku k a, b ka, kb v v 2v 0.5v Geometricall, if a vector v is multiplied b a scalar k, the magnitude of the vector v is multiplied b k. If k is positive, then kv has the same direction as v. If k is negative, then kv has the opposite direction as v. These relationships are illustrated in Figure 5. FIGURE 5 Scalar multiplication geometricall interpreted.

We complete this section b considering a few problems involving static equilibrium. Fundamental to our approach are two basic principles regarding forces and objects subject to these forces: Conditions for Static Equilibrium 1. n object at rest is said to be in static equilibrium. 2. For an object located at the origin in a rectangular coordinate sstem to remain in static equilibrium, at rest, it is necessar that the sum of all the force vectors acting on the object be the zero vector. Eample 7 shows how some important phsics/engineering problems can be solved using algebraic vectors and the conditions for static equilibrium. It is assumed that ou know how to solve a sstem of two equations with two variables. In case ou need a reminder, procedures are reviewed in Section 1-2. EXMPLE 7 Tension in Cables cable car, used to ferr people and supplies across a river, weighs 2,500 pounds full loaded. The car stops when partwa across and deflects the cable relative to the

Draw a force diagram with all force vectors in standard position at the origin (Fig. 7). The objective is to find u and v. Step 2. Write each force vector in terms of the i and j unit vectors: v 7 u 15 w w 2,500 pounds FIGURE 7 u u (cos 7 )i u (sin 7 )j v v ( cos 15 )i v (sin 15 )j w 2,500j Step 3. For the sstem to be in static equilibrium, the sum of the force vectors must be the zero vector. That is, u v w 0 Replacing vectors u, v, and w from step 2, we obtain [ u (cos 7 )i u (sin 7 )j] [ v ( cos 15 )i v (sin 15 )j] 2,500j 0i 0j which on combining i and j vectors becomes [ u (cos 7 ) v ( cos 15 )]i [ u (sin 7 ) v (sin 15 ) 2,500]j 0i 0j Since two vectors are equal if and onl if their corresponding components are equal, we are led to the following sstem of two equations in the two variables u and v : (cos 7 ) u ( cos 15 ) v 0 (sin 7 ) u (sin 15 ) v 2,500 0 Solving this sstem b standard methods, we find that u 6,400 pounds and v 6,600 pounds Did ou epect that the tension in each part of the cable is more than the weight hanging from the cable?

Pole Polar Coordinate Sstem Polar ais r P(r, ) FIGURE 1 Polar coordinate sstem. To form a polar coordinate sstem in a plane (see Fig. 1), start with a fied point and call it the pole, or origin. From this point draw a half line, or ra (usuall horizontal and to the right), and call this line the polar ais. If P is an arbitrar point in a plane, then associate polar coordinates (r, ) with it as follows: Starting with the polar ais as the initial side of an angle, rotate the terminal side until it, or the etension of it through the pole, passes through the point. The coordinate in (r, ) is this angle, in degree or radian measure. The angle is positive if the rotation is counterclockwise and negative if the rotation is clockwise. The r coordinate in (r, ) is the directed distance from the pole to the point P. It is positive if measured from the pole along the terminal side of and negative if measured along the terminal side etended through the pole. Figure 2 illustrates a point P with three different sets of polar coordinates. Stud this figure carefull. The pole has polar coordinates (0, ) for arbitrar. For eample, (0, 0 ), (0, /3), and (0, 371 ) are all coordinates of the pole. FIGURE 2 Polar coordinates of a point. 5 P 4 4, P ( 4, 225 ) 5 P 3 4, (a) (b) (c)
