    In one of the examples, I noticed that they made a quick substitution for the following vectors:\[\overrightarrow{i} = \langle 0,0,1\rangle\]\[\overrightarrow{j} = \langle 0,1,0\rangle\]\[\overrightarrow k = \langle0,0,1\rangle\]So are vector i, vector j and vector k defined vectors?

    one more thing you should know, the expression for vectors is given as \[\vec A = x\hat i + y\hat j + z\hat k\] or something like that

    • one year ago
  26. lgbasallote

    that means i is a vector component for x j is a vector component for y k is a vector component for z

    • one year ago

    so when you have \[\hat i\] that means \[\vec A = 1\hat i + 0\hat j + 0\hat k\] so there's no value for y or z so it just lies on +x-axiis

    We evolved with certain rules that made no sense. For example: 1) Babies are supposed to play with toys. 2) Adults are supposed to watch movies with stripping scenes. 3) Kids don't know anything. I feel that it is *us* who evolved with these beliefs :) a baby can do calculus as well, but we made the baby play with toys.

    Parth I think you should spend your time more on Algebra and Trig. Calculus isn't tricky. IMO doesn't even asks question from calculus. Get a good book on Algebra and start solving it.

    hmm I am not against Parth learning Calculus but the thing is Algebra could be a lot trickier than Calculus. So it's really important that one spends significant amount of time on Algebra. As for academics I don't think 8th grade is really complex. He could still be a valedictorian. :-)
