Tutor description

Any three non-coplanar vectors form a base, or basis, in which an arbitrary vector may be decomposed or expanded. But is often most convenient to choose the basis vectors perpendicular to each other. In this case the basis is called orthogonal.

IntroductionConsidering a three-dimensional space.Vector notation: x, (x1,x2, x3), xi (where i = 1, 2, 3).Length: Any three non-coplanar vectors form a base, or basis, in which an arbitrary vector may be decomposed or expanded. But is often most convenient to choose the basis vectors perpendicular to each other. In this case the basis is called orthogonal. A particular useful set of basis vectors is the Cartesian basis (e1, e2, e3) consisting of three mutually orthogonal vectors of unit length which have the same direction at all points in space. Such a set of vectors is called orthon
