Description

A geometric approach to vectors, matrices and vector fields and their applications to forces and velocities in three dimensions.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Find the scalar and cross product of vectors with applications including the projection of vectors, angles, areas, volumes and angular velocity

2.

Find the vector equations of lines and planes in three dimensions

3.

Determine the linear independence of vectors with geometric interpretation

4.

Find linear transformations and isometries as matrix operations including rotation and reflection. Find eigenvalues and eigenvectors

5.

Calculate the radial and tangential components of rotating systems

6.

Calculate the gradient of a scalar field and the divergence and curl of a vector field
