Vectors, the major focus of this weeks course material, are the heart and soul of not just the study of physics, but also other forms of mathematics (e.g, linear algebra, geometry), computer science, biology, business and finance, and many other fields. In short, vectors are incredibly useful and found in many different fields of study, and are well worth the extended look we will be giving them.
This week lets talk about vectors and how they are used in various fields of study. What are some typical real world situations where you find vectors being used? Pick one such situation and describe it in some detail. What was the most interesting thing you learned about how vectors are being used?
Put the application you chose to explore in the subject line heading of your initial post (for example, Vectors used to calculate the trajectory of geosynchronous satellites).
