Recall the Pythagorean theorem x 2 + y 2 = d 2 . 9 Length of 2D vector. 9. 3) And the general form in Rn with respect to the standard basis is v = 2 v02 + v12 + · · · + vn−1 We’ve mentioned the use of unit length vectors as pure indicators of direction; for example, in determining viewing direction or relative location of a light source. Often, though, the process we’ll use to generate our direction vector will not automatically create one of unit length. To create a unit vector vˆ from a general vector v, we normalize v by multiplying it by 1 over its length, or vˆ = v v This sets the length of the vector to v · 1/ v or, as we desire, 1.

For any a in R and v in V , av is in V (multiplicative closure) So formally, we define a real vector space as a set V over R with closure with respect to addition and scalar multiplication on its elements, where the following properties hold: For all u, v, w, 0 in V and all a, b in R: 1. v + w = w + v (commutative property) 2. u + (v + w) = (u + v) + w (associative property) 3. There exists an element 0 such that v + 0 = v (additive identity) 4. For every v, there is an element −v such that v + (−v) = 0 (additive inverse) 5.

Both w and (v × w). Therefore, if we combine normalized versions of w, (v × w) and w × (v × w), we have an orthonormal basis (all are perpendicular and of unit length). The second triple product is called the scalar triple product. It (naturally) returns a scalar, and its formula is u · (v × w). 20). Then the area of the base equals v × w , and u cos θ gives the height of the box. So u · (v × w) = u v × w cos θ or area times height equals volume of the box. 20 Scalar triple product equals volume of parallelopiped.
