Question 4

In Figure, identify the following vectors.

(i) Coinitial (ii) Equal (iii) Collinear but not equal

Answer

 \begin{align} (i) \;Vectors\; \overrightarrow{a}\; and\; \overrightarrow{d}\; are \;coinitial\; because\; they\; have\; the\; same \;initial \;point. \end{align}



 \begin{align}(ii)\; Vectors\;\overrightarrow{b} \;and\;\overrightarrow{d}\; are\; equal\; because\; they\; have\; the\; same \;magnitude \;and\; direction. \end{align}

 \begin{align}(iii)\; Vectors\;\overrightarrow{a} \;and\; \overrightarrow{c} \;are\; collinear\; but\; not\; equal\;. This\; is\; because\; although\; they\; are \;parallel,\; their\; directions\; are\; not \;the\; same.\end{align}
