8 Cartesian Vector Notation We resolve vectors into components using the x and y axes system Each component of the vector is shown as a magnitude and a direction The directions are based on the x and y axes. We use the unit vectors i and j to designate the x and y axes, respectively. Cartesian Vector Notation - continued For example, F = F x i + F y j F' = F' x i + F' y j The x and y axes are always perpendicular to each other. Together,they can be directed at any inclination. Engr221 Chapter 2 8

9 Addition of Several Vectors Step 1 is to resolve each force into its components. Step 2 is to add all the x components together and add all the y components together. These two totals become the resultant vector. Addition of Several Vectors - continued Step 3 is to find the magnitude and angle of the resultant vector. Engr221 Chapter 2 9

10 Magnitude and Angle You can also represent a 2-D vector with a magnitude and an angle. Example A Given: Three concurrent forces acting on a bracket. Find: The magnitude and angle of the resultant force. Plan: a) Resolve the forces into their x and y components b) Add the respective components to get the resultant vector c) Find magnitude and angle from the resultant components Engr221 Chapter 2 10

11 Example A - continued F 1 F 2 F 3 = { 15 sin 40 i + 15 cos 40 j } kn = { i j } kn = { -(12/13)26 i + (5/13)26 j } kn = { -24 i + 10 j } kn = { 36 cos 30 i 36 sin 30 j } kn = { i 18 j } kn Example A - continued Summing up all the i and j components respectively, we get, F R = { ( ) i + ( ) j } kn = { i j } kn y F R F R = ((16.82) 2 + (3.49) 2 ) 1/2 = 17.2 kn θ = tan -1 (3.49/16.82) = 11.7 θ x Engr221 Chapter 2 11

12 Example B Given: Three concurrent forces acting on a bracket. Find: The magnitude and angle of the resultant force. Plan: a) Resolve the forces into their x and y components b) Add the respective components to get the resultant vector c) Find magnitude and angle from the resultant components Example B - continued F 1 = { (4/5) 850 i - (3/5) 850 j } N = { 680 i j } N F 2 = { -625 sin(30 ) i cos(30 ) j } N = { i j } N F 3 = { -750 sin(45 ) i cos(45 ) j } N { i j } N Engr221 Chapter 2 12

13 Example B - continued Summing up all the i and j components respectively, we get, F R = { ( ) i + ( ) j }N = { i j } N F R = ((162.8) 2 + (521) 2 ) ½ = 546 N θ = tan 1 (521/162.8) = or θ y x From the positive x axis: θ = = 253 F R Textbook Problem 2-55 If F 2 = 150 lb and θ = 55º, determine the magnitude and orientation, measured clockwise from the positive x axis, of the resultant force of the three forces acting on the bracket.

How do you represent each of the cable forces in Cartesian vector form? Engr221 Chapter 2 15

16 Applications - continued Given the forces in the cables, how do you determine the resultant force acting at D, the top of the tower? Applications - continued Engr221 Chapter 2 16

17 Right Handed Coordinate System A Cartesian coordinate system is said to be right-handed provided the thumb of the right hand points in the direction of the positive z axis when the right-hand fingers are curled about this axis and directed from the positive x toward the positive y axis. A Unit Vector For a vector A with a magnitude of A, a unit vector U A is defined as U A = A / A Characteristics of a unit vector: a) Its magnitude is 1 b) It is dimensionless c) It points in the same direction as the original vector (A) The unit vectors in the Cartesian axis system are i, j, and k. They are unit vectors along the positive x, y, and z axes respectively. Engr221 Chapter 2 17

18 3-D Cartesian Vector Terminology Consider a box with sides A X, A Y, and A Z meters long. The vector A can be defined as A = (A X i + A Y j + A Z k) m The projection of the vector A in the x-y plane is A. The magnitude of this projection, A, is found by using the same approach as a 2-D vector: A = (A X2 + A Y2 ) 1/2. The magnitude of the vector A can now be obtained as: A = ((A ) 2 + A Z2 ) ½ = (A X2 + A Y2 + A Z2 ) ½ Terminology - continued The direction or orientation of vector A is defined by the angles α, β, and γ. These angles are measured between the vector and the positive x, y and z axes, respectively. Their values range from 0 to 180. Using trigonometry, direction cosines, and coordinate direction angles are found using the formulas: Engr221 Chapter 2 18

19 Terminology - continued These angles are not independent. They must satisfy the following equation: cos ² α + cos ² β + cos ² γ = 1 This result can be derived from the definition of coordinate direction angles and the unit vector. Recall, the formula for finding the unit vector is: or written another way: u A = cos α i + cos β j + cos γ k Cartesian Vector Math Once individual vectors are written in Cartesian form, it is easy to add or subtract them. The process is essentially the same as when 2-D vectors are added. For example, if A = A X i + A Y j + A Z k and B = B X i + B Y j + B Z k then A + B = (A X + B X ) i + (A Y + B Y ) j + (A Z + B Z ) k and A B = (A X - B X ) i + (A Y - B Y ) j + (A Z - B Z ) k Engr221 Chapter 2 19

20 Important Notes Sometimes 3-D vector information is given as: a) Magnitude and coordinate direction angles, or b) Magnitude and projection angles You should be able to use both types of information to change the representation of the vector into the Cartesian form, i.e., F = {10 i 20 j + 30 k} N Example A G Given: Two forces F and G are applied to a hook. Force F is shown in the figure and it makes a 60 angle with the x-y plane. Force G is pointing up and has a magnitude of 80 lb with α = 111 and β = Find: The resultant force in Cartesian vector form. Plan: 1) Using geometry and trigonometry, write F and G in Cartesian vector form 2) Add the two forces together Engr221 Chapter 2 20

21 Example A - continued Solution : First, resolve force F. F z = 100 sin 60 = lb F' = 100 cos 60 = lb F x = 50 cos 45 = lb F y = 50 sin 45 = lb Now, you can write: F = {35.36 i j k} lb Example A - continued Next, resolve force G. We are given only α and β. We need to find the value of γ. Recall the formula cos ² (α) + cos ² (β) + cos ² (γ) = 1. Now substitute what we know. We have cos ² (111 ) + cos ² (69.3 ) + cos ² (γ) = 1. Solving, we get γ = or Since the vector is pointing up, γ = G Now using the coordinate direction angles, we can get U G, and determine G from the formula: G = 80U G lb. G = {80 ( cos (111 ) i + cos (69.3 ) j + cos (30.22 ) k )} lb G = { i j k } lb Finally, find the resultant vector R = F + G or R = {6.69 i 7.08 j k} lb Engr221 Chapter 2 21

22 Example B Given: The screw eye is subjected to two forces. Find: The magnitude and the coordinate direction angles of the resultant force. Plan: 1) Using geometry and trigonometry, write F 1 and F 2 in Cartesian vector form 2) Add F 1 and F 2 to get F R 3) Determine the magnitude and α, β, and γ of F R Example B - continued F 1z F First resolve force F 1. F 1z = 300 sin 60 = N F = 300 cos 60 = N F can be further resolved as, F 1x = -150 sin 45 = N F 1y = 150 cos 45 = N Now we can write : F 1 = { i j k } N Engr221 Chapter 2 22

23 Example B - continued Force F 2 can be represented in Cartesian vector form as: F 2 = 500{ cos 60 i + cos 45 j + cos 120 k } N = { 250 i j 250 k } N F R = F 1 + F 2 = { i j k } N F R = ( ) ½ = = 482 N α = cos -1 (F Rx / F R ) = cos -1 (143.9/481.7) = 72.6 β = cos -1 (F Ry / F R ) = cos -1 (459.6/481.7) = 17.4 γ = cos -1 (F Rz / F R ) = cos -1 (9.81/481.7) = 88.8 Questions 1. What is not true about the unit vector, U A? A) It is dimensionless B) Its magnitude is one C) It always points in the direction of positive x axis D) It always points in the direction of vector A 2. If F = {10 i + 10 j + 10 k} N and G = {20 i + 20 j + 20 k } N, then F + G = { } N A) 10 i + 10 j + 10 k B) 30 i + 20 j + 30 k C) -10 i - 10 j - 10 k D) 30 i + 30 j + 30 k Engr221 Chapter 2 23

27 Applications How can we represent the force along the wing strut in a 3-D Cartesian vector form? Wing strut A position vector is defined as a fixed vector that locates a point in space relative to another point. Position Vector Consider two points, A & B, in 3D space. Let their coordinates be (X A, Y A, Z A ) and (X B, Y B, Z B ), respectively. The position vector directed from A to B, r AB, is defined as r AB = {( X B X A ) i + ( Y B Y A ) j + ( Z B Z A ) k } m Note that B is the ending point and A is the starting point. Always subtract the tail coordinates from the tip coordinates. Engr221 Chapter 2 27

28 Force Vector Along a Line If a force is directed along a line, then the force can be represented in Cartesian coordinates by using a unit vector and the force magnitude. So we need to: a) Find the position vector, r AB, along two points on that line b) Find the unit vector describing the line s direction, u AB = (r AB /r AB ) c) Multiply the unit vector by the magnitude of the force, F = F u AB Example A Given: 400 lb force along the cable DA Find: Plan: The force F DA in Cartesian vector form 1.
