Title Modelling displacements and velocities
Description
  • <p>In this course you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section&#xA0;2, in which you will also work with bearings.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 1 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/mathematics?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Mathematics</a></span>.</p>
