# Finding the Projection of u onto v In Exercises 37—-44, (a) find the projection of u onto v and (b) find the vector component of u orthogonal to v. u = 2 i − 3 j ,   v = 3 i + 2 j

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The coordinate of projection of vector u=2i3j onto v=3i+2j.

Explanation

Given:

The vectors are u=2i3j and v=3i+2j.

Formula used:

The projection of vector v onto the vector u is given by projvu=(uvv2)v.

Calculation:

If u and v are non-zero vectors, then, the projection of u onto v is given by,

projvu=(uvv2)v

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The coordinate of the vector component of u=2i3j orthogonal to v=3i+2j.
