# 1.5 Game 2302-0115: working with column matrices, points, and  (Page 7/9)

 Page 7 / 9

By now, you should have no difficulty understanding how the output shown in Figure 3 was produced by the code shown in Listing 8 . Note, however, that the last value on the third row should be 0.0 instead of the extremelysmall value shown. This is an example of an inherent problem having to do with comparing double or float values with other double or float values for absolute equality.

## Documentation for the GM2D03 library

Click here to download a zip file containing standard javadoc documentation for the library named GM2D03 . Extract the contents of the zip file into an empty folder and open the filenamed index.html in your browser to view the documentation.

Although the documentation doesn't provide much in the way of explanatory text (see Listing 11 and the explanations given above) , the documentation does provide a good overview of the organization and structure ofthe library. You may find it helpful in that regard.

## Homework assignment

Your homework assignment for this module was to study Kjell's tutorial through Chapter 2 - Column and Row Matrix Addition .

The homework assignment for the next module is to study the Kjell tutorial through Chapter 3 - Vector Addition .

In addition to studying the Kjell material, you should read at least the next two modules in this collection and bring your questions about thatmaterial to the next classroom session.

Finally, you should have begun studying the physics material at the beginning of the semester and you should continue studying one physics moduleper week thereafter. You should also feel free to bring your questions about that material to the classroom for discussion.

## Run the programs

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 12 , Listing 13 , and Listing 14 . Compile the code and execute it in conjunction with the game-math libraryprovided in Listing 11 . Experiment with the code, making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changesbehave as they do.

## Summary

In this module, you learned how to compare column matrices for equality, compare two points for equality, compare two vectors for equality, add onecolumn matrix to another, subtract one column matrix from another, and get a displacement vector from one point to another.

## What's next?

The next module in the collection will show one way for you to visualize column matrices in graphical form.

In the module following that one, you will learn:

• How to add two or more vectors.
• About the relationship between the length of the sum of vectors and the sum of the lengths of the vectors.
• How to add a vector to a point.
• How to get the length of a vector.
• How to represent an object in different coordinate frames.

## Miscellaneous

This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
Alexandre

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
