Answer 15

True. In fact, when the lengths of the vectors are the same and they are opposite in direction, the length of the sum of the two vectors is zero.

Back to Question 15

Answer 14

False. When you add vectors, the order in which you add the vectors doesn't matter. The result will be the same no matter the order in which you add them.

Answer 13

False. If an object is registered as an ActionListener on a button, the actionPerformed method belonging to the object is called each time the user clicks the button.

Back to Question 13

Answer 12

False. In order to cause a point to remain in the same location relative to world coordinates, its values relative to the current coordinate frame must bemodified each time the coordinate frame is modified.

Answer 10

False. The head-to-tail rule applies for the sum of any number of vectors in any number of dimensions (but it is difficult to draw in more than threedimensions).

Back to Question 10

Answer 9

False. It doesn't matter whether or not the coinciding tails are drawn at the origin. The head-to-tail rule still holds true.

Back to Question 9

Answer 8

True. This is a description of the head-to-tail rule.

Back to Question 8

Answer 7

False. While it's legal to draw a vector anywhere in space, certain positions may have advantages over other positions in some cases.

Answer 6


Back to Question 6

Answer 5

False. When you draw a vector, you can draw it anywhere in space, and one position is equally as valid as any other position.

Answer 4


Back to Question 4

Answer 3

False. The sum of a vector and a point is another point .

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

False. The length of a 2D vector is equal to the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle formed by the lengths of the horizontal and vertical componentsof the vector.

are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
