London, Harrap, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Horst Teichmann. (N.B.: Unit vectors are non-denominate, have a magnitude of unity, and are used only to specify a direction.) Then the total vector, in terms of its scalar components and the unit vectors, can be written as V = ai + bj + ck.

This notation is standard in all books on physics and engineering. It is also used in books on introductory Size: KB. Like a vector, which can be expressed as the sum of scalar components times base vectors, we shall represent a tensor as the sum of scalar components times base tensors.

We introduce the tensor product of vectors as the building block to define a nat ural basis for a second-order tensor.

The tensor product of vectors. Angular momentum The most important physical example of the use of the vector product is in the deﬁnition of angular momentum. The scalar version of this is familiar: for a particle of mass mmoving in a circle of radius rat velocity v, the Physical applications of vectors and tensors book momentum is L= mvr= rp, where pis the momentum.

The book can be useful for beginners who are interested in the basics of tensor calculus. It also can be used by experienced readers who seek a comprehensive review on applications of the tensor calculus in mechanics.

Tisdell - Bookboon, Vectors provide a fascinating tool to describe motion and forces in physics and engineering. This book takes learning to a new level by combining written notes with online video. Each lesson is linked with a YouTube video from Dr Chris Tisdell. The principal feature of the book is that the authors use mainly orthogonal tensors, since such tensors are important in applications to physics and engineering.

All notions introduced in the book, and also the obtained results, are illustrated with numerous examples discussed in the text.
