1.1

Basic concept

Vectors have magnitude and direction, whereas scalars have only magnitude.

and Q are called respectively initial and terminal points of the vector PQ . The direction of vector

PQ

is from P to Q.

The magnitude of vector PQ is denoted by | PQ | and represents length of line segment PQ.

Zero vector. A vector whose initial and terminal points coincide is called a zero vector. It is also

| AA | = 0.

r

Unit vector. A vector a is called a unit vector if its magnitude is one unit. It is denoted by a , | a | = 1.

r

r

Unit vector represents direction along a vector a , also a = a .

Position vector of a point. If we take a fixed point O, which is called the origin of reference

and P be any point in the plane, then the vector OP is called the position vector of P relative to

r

O. If position vector of point P is a , denoted as P( ar ), then corresponding to some origin of

reference O, OP = a .

1.2

Line of support. A line, whose segment is PQ, is called the line of support of the vector PQ .

Types of vectors

1.

Like vectors. Two vectors are said to be like vectors, if they have (i) same or parallel lines of

support.

(ii) same direction.

2.

Unlike vectors. Two vectors are said to be unlike vectors, if (i) their lines of support are same

or parallel, (ii) opposite direction.

3.

Equal vectors. Two vectors are said to be equal, if they have (i) same or parallel lines of

support, (ii) same direction and (iii) equal magnitudes.

We can also say that if like vectors have equal magnitudes then they are equal.

4.

Coinitial vectors. Two or more vectors are said to be coinitial vectors if they have the same

5.

6.

7.

Collinear vectors. Two or more vectors are called collinear vectors, if they have the same or

parallel lines of support.

Coplanar vectors. Any number of non-zero vectors are said to be coplanar if they lie in the

same plane or parallel planes.

Negative vector. A vector which has the same magnitude but opposite direction of the given

represented along two adjacent sides of a parallelogram, then

their resultant is represented along the diagonal of a parallelogram passing through the common vertex of adjacent sides. If

the sides OA and OC of a parallelogram OABC represent

respectively

OA

and OC , then OA + OC = OB .

Additive identity. For every vector a , a zero vector 0 is its additive identity as ar + 0 = ar .

r

Additive inverse. For a vector ar , a negative of vector ar is its additive inverse as ar + ( ar ) = 0 .

Properties of with respect to multiplication

Multiplication of a vector by a scalar. Let ar be a given vector and k a scalar, then multiplication

of vector ar by scalar k, denoted k ar , is a vector whose magnitude is k times that of vector ar and

direction is (i) same as that of ar , if k > 0. (ii) opposite to that of ar , if k < 0. (iii) a zero vector, if k = 0.

r

Either | ar | = 0, | b | = 0 or q = 0

r

Hence, From (1) and (2) taken together, we have

Either | ar | = 0 or | b | = 0

r

Ex.25 If either a = 0 or b = 0 , then a b = 0 . Is the converse true ? Justify your answer with an

example.

Sol.

The converse not true. take any two non-zero collinear vectors, say, a = i - j + 2k and b = 2i - 2j + 4k

Then,
