I'm certainly a beginner when it comes to MatLAB, but I can find my way around eventually; except with this problem. I'm given the following to find, with the givens:
Use the determinate, or norm, to calculate the volume of the area enclosed by the following vectors.
a = 2*i+1*j+1*k
This is all that's given to me. When I enter this into MatLAB, it returns the error message, "??? Undefined function or variable 'k'." When I first looked at this problem, my first thought was, what are "i," "j," and "k." But I came to the conclusion that "i," and "j," are just the imaginary units, but I still have no idea what "k" is. Any help is appreciated!
No products are associated with this question.
hi, like other users said , you need to understand that i,j,and k represent the Unitary vectors for Orthonormal basis -> -> -> ( i, j, k) with coordinates : i(1,0,0), j(0,1,0) and k(0,0,1),
You can create these vectors right? then you can create also the vectors a,b,c , so what type of product that gives a volume ?
THINK OF : Mixed product, Determinant, Base , columns .
