Homework Statement
For what value(s) of t is <3t^{2}-t^{3}, 2t^{2}> a vertical vector?
The Attempt at a Solution
I set them equal to each other, and received t=1. Is that what I am supposed to do?
A vertical vector is a mathematical representation of a quantity that has only a magnitude and direction along the vertical axis. It can be visualized as a line pointing straight up or down on a coordinate plane.
To find the value of a vertical vector, you need to know its magnitude and direction. You can use trigonometric functions such as sine and cosine to calculate the vertical component of the vector.
A vertical vector represents a quantity along the vertical axis, while a horizontal vector represents a quantity along the horizontal axis. They can have the same magnitude and direction, but their components are in different directions.
A vertical vector is typically represented using the symbol "v" with an arrow on top to indicate its direction. Its components can be written as (0, v) where 0 represents the x-axis and v represents the vertical component.
Vertical vectors are used in various fields such as physics, engineering, and computer graphics. Some examples include calculating the force of gravity on an object, determining the direction and speed of a projectile, and creating 3D models in video games and animation.
