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.

Read in the blogs more about the unique learning experience at nubtrek.

User Guide

Welcome to nubtrek.

The content is presented in small-focused learning units to enable you to
think,
figure-out, &
learn.

Just keep tapping (or clicking) on the content to continue in the trail and learn.

User Guide

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

nub,

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

User Guide

nub is the simple explanation of the concept.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about.

User Guide

trek is the step by step exploration of the concept.

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step.

User Guide

jogger provides the complete mathematical definition of the concepts.

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen.

User Guide

exercise provides practice problems to become fluent in the concepts.

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge.

Vector as Sum of Vectors

»  numerical expression in place of numbers
→  2 can be represented with 4-2 or 34/17
All these represent the same number.

»  Vectors as Linear combination of vectors
→  3 sqrt(2) at 45^@ angle
→  3 at 0^@ + 3 at 90^@
→  6 at 90^@ + 3sqrt(2) at -45^@
All these represent the same vector.

Which of the following is the largest number?

• 5
• 2+3
• 6-1
• All the above

A quantity can be equivalently represented with a number or combination of several numbers.

Three persons, starting from a common point, are walking
•  Person A walks at an angle 45^@ for 3xx sqrt2 meter
•  Person B walks 3 meter at an angle 0^@ and then 3 meter at an angle 90^@
•  Person C walks 6 meter at an angle 90^@ and then 3 xx sqrt2 meter at an angle −45^@

To walk to the starting point, all three has to walk ____

• same distance but different directions
• same distance in the same direction
• different distances in the same direction
• different distances in different directions

Answer is 'same distance in the same direction'. A vector quantity can be equivalently represented by combination of several vectors.

Three persons, starting from a common point, are walking
•  Person A walks at an angle 45^@ for 3xx sqrt2 meter
•  Person B walks 3 meter at an angle 0^@ and then 3 meter at an angle 90^@
•  Person C walks 6 meter at an angle 90^@ and then 3 xx sqrt2 meter at an angle −45^@. What describes the walk of Person A?

• One vector quantity 3sqrt2 at angle 45^@
• Sum of two vector quantities 3sqrt2 and angle 45^@

The answer is 'One vector quantity'.

Three persons, starting from a common point, are walking
•  Person A walks at an angle 45^@ for 3xx sqrt2 meter
•  Person B walks 3 meter at an angle 0^@ and then 3 meter at an angle 90^@
•  Person C walks 6 meter at an angle 90^@ and then 3 xx sqrt2 meter at an angle −45^@ What describes the walk of Person B?

• two vector quantities 3 at 0^@ and 3 at 90^@
• two vector quantities 6 at 90^@ and 3sqrt2 at -45^@

Answer is 'two vector quantities 3 at 0^@ and 3 at 90^@'.

Note that person A’s and person B’s walks are specified by one vector quantity and two vector quantities. Still, they are at the same distance and direction from the starting point. Effectively, their return to the starting point can be specified by one identical vector quantity.

In scalar quantities, person A has 3 apples in a basket. Person B has 2 apples in one hand and 1 apple in another hand. Who has more apples?

• Person A
• Person B
• both have the same number of apples

The answer is 'both have the same number of apples', which is understood as 2+1 = 3.

Given vectors
vec x = 2i+3j+4k

vec y = -1i-1j-2k

vec z = i+2j+2k
What is vec x+vec y?

• i-2j+2k
• i+2j+2k
• 3i+4j+6k
• none of the above

answer is 'i+2j+2k'. Note that the result is same as vec z. Reiterating that A vector can be equivalently given as a sum of vectors.
