Topic: Vectors
Subtopic: Applications

Overview

Continuing in our study of vectors, this lesson involves some fairly advanced vector algebra and analysis. Vectors are used frequently in engineering, physics, and calculus applications. Consider this lesson a basic introduction to the methods of analysis, but please know that you will get lots more practice in future courses regarding these very useful concepts. At this level, focus on becoming familiar with applying and analyzing vectors.
