In summary, a parallelepiped is a three-dimensional shape with six faces that are all parallelograms. It is formed using three non-collinear vectors, which determine the shape and size of the parallelepiped. The vectors used to form this specific parallelepiped are u = (-2,3,5), v = (4,2,8), and w. These vectors must follow certain rules in order for the shape to be considered a parallelepiped. Using vectors to form a parallelepiped allows for specific properties and applications in mathematical and scientific calculations.

a parallelepiped is formed by vectors u = (-2,3,5), v = (4,2,8) and w = (1,-1,3) and has vertex at the origin determine:

a) the vertices of the Parallelepiped
b) the volume of Parallelepiped
c) angle between base and two adjacent faces

Does anybody know how to solve this

Thank You

Hi SSUP21! :wink:

Show us how far you get, and where you're stuck, and then we'll know how to help! :smile:

Hi
Thanks for replying but I don't know where to start with this one
 

1. What is a parallelepiped?

A parallelepiped is a three-dimensional shape that has six faces, each of which are parallelograms. It is similar to a cube or rectangular prism, but its faces are not necessarily square or rectangular.

2. How is a parallelepiped formed?

A parallelepiped is formed by using three non-collinear vectors, which means that the vectors are not in the same line. These vectors serve as the edges of the parallelepiped, and their length and direction determine the shape of the parallelepiped.

3. What are the vectors used to form this specific parallelepiped?

The vectors used to form this parallelepiped are u = (-2,3,5), v = (4,2,8), and w. These three vectors are not collinear, and their lengths and directions determine the shape and size of the parallelepiped.

4. Can the vectors used to form a parallelepiped be any values?

No, the vectors used to form a parallelepiped must follow certain rules in order for the shape to be considered a parallelepiped. The vectors must be non-collinear, and their lengths and directions must be able to form a closed shape with six faces that are all parallelograms.

5. What is the importance of using vectors to form a parallelepiped?

Using vectors to form a parallelepiped allows for the shape to have specific properties, such as having six faces that are all parallelograms. This also allows for the shape to be used in various mathematical and scientific calculations, as the properties of vectors can be applied to the parallelepiped.
