Give the equation for the vector projection of v1 onto v

2

Give the equation for the scalar projection of v1 onto v2 

3

Describe how to obtain a vector perpendicular to v1 and v2

v1 x v2 

4

Give the scalar equation of a line 

5

Give the vector equation of a line 

6

Give the equation for the smallest difference between a point C and a line that passes through A and B

Note that this is the same equation used to find the shortest distance between two lines

8

Give the complex conjugate of r = ei𝜃

r* = e-i𝜃

9

State how to convert between polar and cartesian coordinates

x = rcos𝜃

y = rsin𝜃
