**Ques 1:**** ****Is a vector necessarily changed if it is rotated through an angle? ****Ans:** Yes. A vector is defined by its magnitude and direction, so a vector can be changed by changing its magnitude and direction. If we rotate it through an angle, its direction changes and we can say that the vector has changed.

Example: Let us add two vectors of unequal magnitudes acting in opposite directions. The resultant vector is given by

If two vectors are exactly opposite to each other, then

From the above equation, we can say that the resultant vector is zero (R = 0) when the magnitudes of the vectors are equal (A = B) and both are acting in the opposite directions.

Yes, it is possible to add three vectors of equal magnitudes and get zero.

Lets take three vectors of equal magnitudes given these three vectors make an angle of 120° with each other. Consider the figure below:

Lets examine the components of the three vectors.

Hence, proved.

Ans:

For any vector , assume that

Again, for any real number λ we have:

The significance of a zero vector can be better understood through the following examples:

The displacement vector of a stationary body for a time interval is a zero vector.

Similarly, the velocity vector of the stationary body is a zero vector.

When a ball, thrown upward from the ground, falls to the ground, the displacement vector is a zero vector, which defines the displacement of the ball.

No, the answer does not change if two unit vectors are along the coordinate axes. Assume three unit vectors along the positive

The magnitudes of the three unit vectors are the same, but their directions are different.

So, the resultant of is a zero vector.

Now, (Using the property of zero vector)

∴ The resultant of three unit vectors is a unit vector

Both the conditions can be satisfied:

(a) i.e., the two vectors are equal in magnitude and parallel to each other

(b) i.e., the two vectors are unequal in magnitude and parallel or anti parallel to each other

(b) it is multiplied by an arbitrary scalar

(c) it is cross multiplied by a unit vector

(d) it is slid parallel to itself.

A vector is defined by its magnitude and direction. If we slide it to a parallel position to itself, then none of the given parameters, which define the vector, will change.

Let the magnitude of a displacement vector directed towards the north be 5 metres. If we slide it parallel to itself, then the direction and magnitude will not change.

The rules to determine the number of significant digits says that in the multiplication of two or more numbers, the number of significant digits in the answer should be equal to that of the number with the minimum number of significant digits. Here, 2.12 cm has a minimum of three significant digits. So, the answer must be written in three significant digits.

Here, we have three vector A, B and C.

Using the resultant property we get:

However, the converse is not true. For example, if two of the vectors are parallel, then also,

So, they need not be mutually perpendicular.

Ans:

This product is always equal to the perpendicular distance from point O. Also, the direction of this product remains constant.

So, irrespective of the the position of the particle, the magnitude and direction of remain constant.

(c) 100.10

Number of significant digits = 5

Number of significant digits = 4

i.e., 1 m = 1000 mm

The minimum number of significant digits may be one (e.g., for measurements like 4 mm and 6 mm) and the maximum number of significant digits may be 4 (e.g., for measurements like 1000 mm). Hence, the number of significant digits may be 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Radius of the cylinder,

Volume of the cylinder, V = π

= (π) × (4.54) × (1.75)^{2}

The minimum number of significant digits in a particular term is three. Therefore, the result should have three significant digits, while the other digits should be rounded off.

∴ Volume, V = πr^{2}l

= (3.14) × (1.75) × (1.75) × (4.54)

= 43.6577 cm^{3}

Since the volume is to be rounded off to 3 significant digits, we have:*V* = 43.7 cm^{3} **Ques 58: The thickness of a glass plate is measured to be 2.17 mm, 2.17 mm and 2.18 mm at three different places. Find the average thickness of the plate from this data.****Ans: **Average thickness

∴ Rounding off to three significant digits, the average thickness becomes 2.17 mm. **Ques 59: The length of the string of a simple pendulum is measured with a metre scale to be 90.0 cm. The radius of the bod plus the length of the hook is calculated to be 2.13 cm using measurements with a slide callipers. What is the effective length of the pendulum? (The effective length is defined as the distance between the point of suspension and the centre of the bob.) ****Ans: **Consider the figure shown below:

Actual effective length = (90.0 + 2.13) cm

However, in the measurement 90.0 cm, the number of significant digits is only two.

So, the effective length should contain only two significant digits.

i.e., effective length = 90.0 + 2.13 = 92.1 cm.** **
