Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

### Vector Algebra

Welcome to the only place where the essence of vectors is explained.

•  A vector in first-principles is a quantity with spatial-direction specified. Example: 2m north-east.

•  A vector in component form is linear-combination of unit vectors of independent directions. eg: 2i+2j

•  A vector in 3D co-ordinate system is a ray initiating from the origin.

Vector addition, dot product, and cross product are explained in

»  first principle,

»  geometrical meaning, and

»  component form.

The details explained here are revolutionary and astonishingly simple to understand.

Introduction to Vector Quantities

Welcome to the only place where the essence of vectors is explained.

Integers are "directed-whole-numbers", with positive numbers aligned to a chosen direction, and negative numbers opposed to the chosen direction.

Vectors are "spatial-directed-quantities". The spatial directions are

•  x-axis (eg: right and left for a person)

•  y-axis (eg: forward and backward for a person) and

•  z-axis (eg: up and down for a person)

This page introduces the concept of vectors and the representation in component form in a simple thought-process.

Vectors and Coordinate Geometry

Welcome to the astoundingly clear and simple lesson on vectors and coordinate geometry.

Coordinate Geometry is the system of geometry where the position of points on the 3D coordinates are described as ordered pairs of numbers corresponding to the three axes. In the mathematical representation of vectors, the components along 3D coordinates are described individually. In this topic, you will learn how these two are related.

Direction - Unique Feature of Vectors

Welcome to the only place where the essence of vector arithmetics is explained.

Vectors are quantities with spatial-direction specified.

If two vectors interact, then usually, one vector is split into two components

•  component along the direction of the other vector

•  component perpendicular to the direction of the other vector.

In vector arithmetics these two components behave differently.

•  Vector addition: the component along the direction adds in magnitude.

•  Vector dot-product: the component along the direction takes part in the product and the component in perpendicular is lost.

•  Vector cross-product: the component in perpendicular to the direction takes part and the component along the direction is lost.

This explanation is coherent and simple for students to connect and remember.
