Flores 16 Definition of coordinate system A coordinate system is a system for assigning real numbers (scalars) to each point in a 3-dimensional Euclidean space. Systems commonly used in this course include: Cartesian coordinate system with coordinates x (length), y (width), and z (height) Cylindrical coordinate system with coordinates ρ (radius on x-y plane), φ (azimuth angle), and z (height) Spherical coordinate system with coordinates r (radius or range), Ф (azimuth angle), and θ (zenith or elevation angle) Dr. Benjamin C. Flores 17 Definition of vector A vector (sometimes called a geometric or spatial vector) is a geometric object that has a magnitude, direction and sense. Dr. Benjamin C. Flores 18 Direction of a vector A vector in or out of a plane (like the white board) are represented graphically as follows: Vectors are described as a sum of scaled basis vectors (components): Dr. Benjamin C.

Flores 28 Dot product The dot product (or scalar product) of vectors a and b is defined as a · b = |a| |b| cos θ where |a| and |b| denote the length of a and b θ is the angle between them. Dr. Benjamin C. Flores 29 Exercise Let a = 2x + 5y + z and b = 3x – 4y + 2z. Find the dot product of these two vectors. Determine the angle between the two vectors. Dr. Benjamin C. Flores 30 Cross product The cross product (or vector product) of vectors a and b is defined as a x b = |a| |b| sin θ n where θ is the measure of the smaller angle between a and b (0° ≤ θ ≤ 180°), a and b are the magnitudes of vectors a and b, and n is a unit vector perpendicular to the plane containing a and b.
