Vector Analysis and Coordinate Systems

ECE3613 Engineering Electromagnetics I

1

Are they vectors?

2

Graphic representation of vectors

ECE3613 Engineering Electromagnetics I

3

Coordinate systems is the way to measure vectors!

z
Equal?

y

Identical?

x ECE3613 Engineering Electromagnetics I

4

Coordinate systems are made by ‘unit vectors’ With ‘RIGHT HAND’ or ‘LEFT HAND’ rules

Vector Operations

We can do in ‘graphic way’ and ‘analytic way

C = A - B

First way:

C = A + (-B)

Second way: Using ‘shorter diagonal’ rule

C = A B

Scalar/dot product

11

C = A × B

Vector or cross product

Perpendicular to both A and B!

Directed area spanned by A and B – right hand rule

Differential length, area and volume

 A ‘tiny’ length with a vector pointing along that length A ‘tiny’ length

A ‘tiny’ surface area with a vector pointing normal to the area

 A ‘tiny’ surface area A ‘tiny’ volume

Field:

A region or space characterized by some physical (scalar or vector) properties

Can you ‘sketch’ these fields?

( scalar field )

( vector field )

Want to see a ‘tornado vortex’ field?

21

Field:

How to describe field if you can not ‘see’ it?

-Lecture 2: vector calculus

Basically, you ‘sense’ the field by measuring its properties and characteristics
