WIt to t to gIve envatlve 2 Of special interest is the case when the scalar t is time. Then (jr is the displacement of P during the time interval (jt and the vector ~: is the average velocity (where average is with respect to time) during this interval. 3. Hence ifv denotes the velocity, v = :~ = t.

The velocity V has components VI' V2, V3 along the three coordinate axes and so P will move distances of VI t, V2t, V3t parallel to the X-, y-, z-axes respectively, in time t. Thus it has undergone a displacement equal to VIti + V2tj + V3tk = vt. Hence if time is measured from the instant when the point P is at A(a) (see Fig. 7), its position vector after time t is given by r, where r= a + vt. Of course, these results only apply when V is constant. We are now able to solve problems of the following type.

B = O. EX = 0, and state the geometrical meaning of this result. 7 (a) State the angle between two non-zero vectors a and b in each of the following cases.
