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.

What does 'closure' mean?closure property illustration

  • closed
  • not open
  • both the above
  • both the above

Answer is 'both the above'

What does "span" mean?

  • Full extent of something; all that is included in that
  • Full extent of something; all that is included in that
  • past tense of spin

The answer is 'Full extent of something'

What is the span of vectors in 3D coordinate system?

  • `ai+bj+ck` with `a,b,c in RR`
  • the components of vector taking any real number
  • `RR^3`
  • all the above
  • all the above

The answer is 'All the above'

Vector space `bbb V` consists of all the vectors with real numbers as components.

Is cross product of two vectors be another vector in the vector space?

  • Yes
  • Yes
  • No

The answer is 'Yes'. Cross product of two vectors is another vector.

 •  Cross product of two vectors is another vector - closed.

Closure Property of Cross Product: For any vectors ` vec(a), vec(b) in bbb V`,
` vec(a) xx vec(b) in bbb V`
