Example text

10 shows two vectors A and B, with θ being the angle between their positive directions. 19) Because the dot product is a scalar, it is also called the scalar product. Note that the dot product is positive if θ < 90◦ , negative if θ > 90◦ , and zero if θ = 90◦ . The following two properties of the dot product follow from its definition in Eq. 19). • The dot product is commutative: A · B = B · A • The dot product is distributive: A · (B + C) = A · B + A · C * Note that division by a vector, such as 1/A or B/A, is not defined.

3. 18) y A x Fig. 6 Sample Problem The cable attached to the eyebolt in Fig. (a) is pulled with the force F of magnitude 500 lb. Determine the rectangular representation of this force. z 6 ft t 4f F A O 3 ft B y x (a) Solution Because the coordinates of points A and B on the line of action of F are known, the following is a convenient method for obtaining the rectangular representation of F. z t A 4f 6 ft AB 3 ft O B y − → 1. Write AB, the vector from A to B, in rectangular form. − → The vector AB and its rectangular components are shown in Fig.

Contact forces are distributed over a surface area of the body, whereas forces acting at a distance are distributed over the volume of the body. Sometimes the area over which a contact force is applied is so small that it may be approximated by a point, in which case the force is said to be concentrated at the point of contact. The contact point is also called the point of application of the force. The line of action of a concentrated force is the line that passes through the point of application and is parallel to the force.
