Vectors Introduction- Lesson1 To solve vector problems at the CSEC level, you will need to understand the following terms: Position vector, Displacement vector, Collinear vectors, Equal vectors, Parallel vectors and resultant vectors.

An example will be used to illustrate each point Vector Definition:

Displacement Vector

A vector is a quantity that has a magnitude (size) and a direction. (shown by an arrow)

In the diagram above O A and O B are called position vectors because their starting points are taken relative to the origin (O). The starting point of vector A B is not the origin, so the term displacement vector is used to differentiate between this vector and the position vector.

Vector Representation Vector AB is the vector going from A to B. Three different representations of the vector AB are: 1. 2. 3. A B

Example 1

Points P(3, 2) and Q(-1, -3) have position vectors relative to the origin O. and O Q 1. 2. 3. Express Express

O P PQ O P

and

as a column vector

PQ

m - as a lowercase letter

Position vector

Solution:

The position vectors can be found directly from the coordinates of P and Q:

1)

O P=

()

3 2

= 1 OQ 3

Point A(2,3) can be viewed as being displaced from the origin O, by a vector called the position vector where:

Finding P Q The displacement vector PQ is the vector going from P to Q where : so how do we find this vector?

Find

= AC

Vector equation

b+c

AD = OD = BO =

BM =

MA =

Imagine that your starting position is point P and you wish to get to point Q. Note that the only know path or course is to travel first from P to O, and then from O to Q. This means that we can get from P to Q using the two vectors that we already know. i.e

PQ

PO

OQ

Note carefully that we have the vector O P , but what . we need is the vector P O This is however easily found however, since the vector is simply the reverse of the vector O PO P i.e PO =

= OP

2) so :

PQ =

3 2

() ( )

3 2 1 3

=

( )

4 5 = 6.4

so if a vector is a constant (scalar) multiple of another vector, then they are parallel. Example:

D

f

= 4 2 5 2 PQ

Given: a b =

3 2

c=

12 8

M

d

Now

C

c

12 8

can be written as

()

3 2

(take 4 as a factor)

so

c = 4 b

( k = 4 a constant)

O B

In the diagram above, the points are A, B, C , M , and O, and the vectors are a,b,c,d,e, and f. =d So for example: M C Use this diagram to complete the table. (Note the direction of the arrows)

cxcDirect Institute - 876 469-2775 mail: admin@cxcDirect.org website: www.cxcdirect.org

Equal Vectors

Vector e is equal to vector h if they both have the same magnitude and direction. ( so e = h) It follows that equal vectors are also parallel vectors

C

Two points A and B have position vectors 2 4 B = ; O , where O is the O A = 5 2 origin ( 0,0). The point G lies on the line AB such that 1 x AG = AB . Express in the form , 3 y ; position vector O G A B ; AG

A collinear vectors

Two vectors are collinear if one vector is a scalar are B and B C multiple of the other vector. If A collinear (on a straight line), then B C = k.A B where k is a scalar (constant) (Note that this is the same condition for parallel vectors)

A(- 2, 5)

B(4,2)

Example:

Given Points A(-2,1); B(2,3) and C(8,6) . Use a vector method to prove that the points are collinear

We need to prove that : = k.A BC B . ( the condition for collinearity) so we need to find the two displacement vectors A B and then establish the relationship between and B C them.
