Hi,

Explained very well to understand easily using simple language along with rich diagrams.

Thanks for the resource. In mathematics we also teach, as we move toward parametric representations, that a vector in space is a resultant composed of dilations or “stretches” of unit vectors i, j, and k, on the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis, respectively, and that the origin of the vector can be translated to any location in 3-space with coordinates (x, y, z). So the vector 5i + 3j + 2k would give us opportunity to determine the magnitude via distance formulas and the direction via trig ratios. We already know that mathematics tends to be taught differently by mathematicians than it is by scientists, and some example of this unit basis would help bridge the gap. So the vector 5i + 3j + 2k would give us opportunity to determine the magnitude via distance formulas and the direction via trig ratios. Of course, this model extends to combining the components of any 2 or more forces anywhere in 3 space to determine a resultant.
