## vector analysis
V is written V. The dot (or scalar) product of two vectors A and B inclined
at angle c to each other is defined as A.B =AB cos c. The cross (or vector) product of two vectors A and B inclined at an angle c to each other is defined as A × B = (AB sin c)n where n is a unit vector whose direction is perpendicular to the plane of A and B such that, looking along the direction of n,
a clockwise turn of less than 180° is required to bring A into B. See also complex
number. ## Related category• ALGEBRA | |||||||
