Summary of Chapter 10: Vectors and the Geometry of Space

In this chapter we will see that vectors provide particularly simple descriptions of lines, planes, and curves. We will also use vector-valued functions to describe the motion of objects through space. In particular, we will use them to derive Kepler’s laws of planetary motion.

Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Ambiguous case

    The case in which two sides and a nonincluded angle can determine two different triangles

  • Anchor

    See Mathematical induction.

  • Arithmetic sequence

    A sequence {an} in which an = an-1 + d for every integer n ? 2 . The number d is the common difference.

  • Blocking

    A feature of some experimental designs that controls for potential differences between subject groups by applying treatments randomly within homogeneous blocks of subjects

  • Causation

    A relationship between two variables in which the values of the response variable are directly affected by the values of the explanatory variable

  • Combinations of n objects taken r at a time

    There are nCr = n! r!1n - r2! such combinations,

  • Convenience sample

    A sample that sacrifices randomness for convenience

  • Divisor of a polynomial

    See Division algorithm for polynomials.

  • Explanatory variable

    A variable that affects a response variable.

  • Graph of parametric equations

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs determined by the parametric equations.

  • Imaginary axis

    See Complex plane.

  • Implicitly defined function

    A function that is a subset of a relation defined by an equation in x and y.

  • Length of an arrow

    See Magnitude of an arrow.

  • Linear regression equation

    Equation of a linear regression line

  • Obtuse triangle

    A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

  • Polynomial interpolation

    The process of fitting a polynomial of degree n to (n + 1) points.

  • Positive angle

    Angle generated by a counterclockwise rotation.

  • Root of a number

    See Principal nth root.

  • Triangular number

    A number that is a sum of the arithmetic series 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n for some natural number n.

  • Zero factor property

    If ab = 0 , then either a = 0 or b = 0.
