\[\newcommand\ve[1]{\vec{\boldsymbol #1}} % vector
\newcommand\uv[1]{\hat{\boldsymbol #1}} % unit vector
\begin{equation*}\ve A=\begin{bmatrix}a_1\\a_2\\a_3\end{bmatrix}=\langle a_1,a_2,a_3\rangle\\
\end{equation*}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i'm trying to understand the different notations,,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It depends on the situation. In one case you can use different notations for the vector and in another  you cant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you explain why that is so ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, I can. Do you know anything about matrix multiplication?

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So I show a case, when the row notation and the column notation should not be confused. Lets take two vectors: \(\vec{a}=\left(\begin{matrix}1\\2\end{matrix}\right)\) and \(\vec{b}=(3,4)\). And now multiply \(\vec{a}\) on \(\vec{b}\), and then \(\vec{b}\) on \(\vec{a}\): \(\vec{a}\vec{b}=\left(\begin{matrix}1\\2\end{matrix}\right)(3,4)=\left(\begin{matrix}3&4\\6&8\end{matrix}\right)\) \(\vec{b}\vec{a}=(3,4)\left(\begin{matrix}1\\2\end{matrix}\right)=3\cdot1+4\cdot2=11\) If we confuse the rows and the columns we will have the wrong result, because it is important to know where is the column and where is the row. But in other case, when we say about a vector in general, without multiplication, it is not so important to know if it is a row or a column.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do the different vectors fit the same cartesian plane?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22D vectors can represent the points of the cartesian plane. So the different vectors represent different points. And they fit this plane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or should one of those be on the z axis?

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It is ok. Why do you think any of those must be on zaxis? One more question: how did you draw this pic?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i suppose i think the different vectors look different, so they must be orthogonal somehow

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0* i mean the notation is different

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No. Different vectors on the plane are the vectors, that has different components. The notation doesn't play any role.

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so then, the operation of multiplying the vectors somehow chooses that the first vector to be a row vector for dot product, right?

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Scalar product of the vectors is just a particular case of the general multplication of the matrices.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you graph a matrix?

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You have to know what a matrix interprete. It is a table of numbers. My answer is No.

UnkleRhaukus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not even a 2x2 matrix?

klimenkov

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No. How do you think, what does this matrix will show on the plane? A components of the vectors can be read as the point, but what is a matrix?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you written an arrow on top of the A, I assume it is a vector. So the vector is 3 dimensional in R^3. Let the a's equal x, y, and z standing for its components. The second is written in column form and the last one is written in row form. I hope this answers your question. They are both equal but written differently notation wise.
