5 Whether it makes the code cleaner or easier to understand is a highly subjective matter. Although this book does not use different notations for points and vectors, in general it will be clear whether a quantity is a point or a vector. We have tried to avoid presenting results with vectors and points mixed inappropriately, but for all the intermediate steps, we might not have been quite as scrupulous. 3 It’s All Relative Before we move on to the vector operations, let’s take a brief philosophical intermission.

Maybe you’re in a car and so you might say something like 65 mph. ) Actually, you are hurtling through space at almost 30 km per second ! That’s about the speed that Earth travels in order to make the 939-million-km trek around the sun each year. Of course, even this velocity is relative to the sun. Our solar system is moving around within the Milky Way galaxy. So then how fast are we actually moving, in absolute terms? Galileo told us back in the 17th century that this question doesn’t have an answer—all velocity is relative.

Any left-handed coordinate system can be transformed into a righthanded coordinate system, or vice versa. The simplest way to do this is by swapping the positive and negative ends of one axis. Notice that if we 18 1. Cartesian Coordinate Systems When looking towards the origin from. . 1. Rotation about the cardinal axes in left- and right-handed coordinate systems flip two axes, it is the same as rotating the coordinate space 180o about the third axis, which does not change the handedness of the coordinate space.
