Lecture 2 - Vectors in Multiple Dimensions

Lecture 2 - Vectors in Multiple Dimensions

This video was recorded at YALE PHYS 200 - Fundamentals of Physics with Professor Ramamurti Shankar. In this lecture, Professor Shankar discusses motion in more than one dimension. Vectors are introduced and discussed in multiple dimensions. Vector magnitude and direction are also explained. Null vectors, minus vectors, unit and velocity vectors are discussed along with their properties. Finally, several specific problems are solved to demonstrate how vectors can be added, and problems of projectile motion are expounded. Reading assignment: Wolfson and Pasachoff, Physics with Modern Physics, chapter 4. Resources: Problem Set 1 [PDF] Problem Set 1 Solutions [PDF]
