Vectors are integral (sorry) to the study of physics, and the vector analysis can be a semester course in its own right. Basic vector analysis can be done with trig functions (which is where we start), later on we’ll be using matrices.
Looking at my notes I see I jumped over problem sets for significant figures and trig functions too, I’ll circle around back to them after a second set on vectors.
Understanding vectors allows you to answer some cool questions, and some head scratchers as well (second set). The first set is here, we’ll get to the second set next week. This Wednesday we’ll look at temperature scales for chemistry, and motion in a vertical plane for physics.
Have a great week everyone, see you at the white board.
