Question: How to check if a vector is in a subspace of another vector

Lets say we have to vectors u := Vector(3,[0,a_2,a_3]) and v :=Vector(3,[a_1,a_2,a_3]), in which a_1, a_2 and a_3 are arbitrary constants. It is clear that if we set a_1=0 we could see that u is contained in the vector space of v. Is there a function in Maple like isSubspace(u,v) which returns a boolean true or false?

An alternative interpretation could be that the image of u is a subset of the image of v.

Thank you alot for reading my question.
