I know that an orthogonal set is not necessarily orthonormal, but here is my question: Is an orthonormal set necessarily orthogonal? I figured the answer would be yes, except on my last assignment I had a question that said blah blah if {u,v} is an orthonormal set blah blah. But my instructor gave me a hint that said make sure that u and -v are orthogonal. Are they not automatically orthogonal since they are orthonormal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
