  • The angle is 0 degrees to 360 degrees measured as a counter-clockwise rotation from the positive x axis.
  • The angle is 0 degrees to +180 degrees measured as a counter-clockwise rotation from the positive x axis, or is 0 degrees to -180 degrees measured as a clockwise rotation fromthe positive x axis.

Answers

Answer 23

False. There are 2*pi radians in a full circle, so

2*pi radians = 360 degrees

Back to Question 20

Answer 19

True. Arc tan( z ) means "find the angle that has a tangent of z." When you do this with a calculator, remember that the answer may be in radians or in degrees. Some calculators give you the option of using use either format.

Answer 18

C. 315 degrees, or

D.-45 degrees

depending on the convention in use.

Answer 17

True

Back to Question 17

Answer 16

False. If v is a vector, then -v is a vector pointing in the opposite direction.

Kjell, Chapter 4.

Back to Question 16

Answer 15

False. It is possible for the sum of the squared elements to be equal without the elements themselves being equal. In that case, the lengths are the same but the directions are not the same.

Kjell, Chapter 4.

Back to Question 15

Answer 14

True. Since corresponding elements must be equal, so corresponding squares must be equal, so the sum must be equal, so the length must be equal.

Kjell, Chapter 4

Back to Question 14

Answer 13

False. The length property of a vector must be zero or positive. It cannot be negative.

Answer 12

True

Back to Question 11

Answer 10

False. The correct statement follows where |(x,y,z)T| represents a three-dimensional vector:

|(x,y,z)T| = sqrt(x^2 + y^2 + z^2)

Kjell, Chapter 4

Back to Question 10

Answer 9

True

Kjell, Chapter 4

Back to Question 9

Answer 8

False. The following statement is true where the left angle bracket followed by the equal sign indicates "less than orequal." This is known as the "triangle inequality."

|u + v| is less than or equal |u| + |v|

(Note that there is a problem with displaying the left angle bracket using my xhtml to cnxml converter program. That is why it is spelled out in theabove statement.)

The length of the vector is 4 units.

Kjell, Chapter 4

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

False. The correct statement is:

When a 2D vector is aligned with the y axis, the column matrix that represents it has a non-zero value in the second element, and zero for the firstelement.

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
