Question 5

Answer the following as true or false.

\begin{align}(i) \overrightarrow{a}\; and\; \overrightarrow{-a}\; are\; collinear.\end{align}

(ii) Two collinear vectors are always equal in magnitude.

(iii) Two vectors having same magnitude are collinear.

(iv) Two collinear vectors having the same magnitude are equal.

Answer

(i) True.

\begin{align}(i) \overrightarrow{a}\; and\; \overrightarrow{-a}\; are\; collinear.\end{align}

(ii) False.

Collinear vectors are those vectors that are parallel to the same line.

(iii) False.

It is not necessary for two vectors having the same magnitude to be parallel to the same line.

(iv) False.

Two vectors are said to be equal if they have the same magnitude and direction, regardless of the positions of their initial points.
