Video Description: Herb Gross introduces 3-dimensional vectors — those with 3 othogonal components (x, y, z directions). This video also covers 3-dimensional magnitude and arithmetic in Cartesian coordinates (not polar coordinates). Prof. Gross also explains how 3-dimensional vectors are structurally the same as 2-dimensional vectors.
