Homework Help: Math: Vectors

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, February 10, 2008 at 2:11pm.

What conditions must be satisfied by the vectors "u" and "v" for the following to be true?

a) |u + v| = |u - v|
vector "u" is perpendicular to vector "v"

b) |u + v| > |u - v|
0 ≤ θ ≤ 90

c) |u + v| < |u - v|
90 < θ ≤ 180


------- Can you please explain to me why these conditions are true? Why is it perpendicular for the first one? Why is less less than 90, but greater than 0 for question "b"? Why is it less than 180, but greater than 90 for question "c"?
