Calculus 3

posted by on .

Let u=j+k and v=i+jsqrt2.

a) Calculate the length of the projection of v in the u direction.

b) Calculate the cosine of the angle between u and v.

Your help is very much appreciated!

  • Calculus 3 - ,

    u = (1,1) , v = (1,√2)

    The projection of v on u
    = v.u/|u
    = (1 + √2)/√(1^1+1^1) = (1+√2)/√2
    or (√2+2)/2

    b)
    u.v = |u||v|cosØ
    1+√2 = √2 √3 cosØ
    cosØ = (1+√2)/√6 or (√6 + 2√3)/6

    i'm confused on how you got u=(1,1) and v=(1,sqrt2). Shouldn't they each have 3 coordinates?
    u=<0,1,1> and v=<1,sqrt2,0> ???
