Quick Reference

The product of two vectors U and V, with components U1, U2, U3 and V1, V2, V3, respectively, given by: U.V = U1V1 + U2V2U3V3 It can also be written as UVcosθ, where U and V are the lengths of U and V, respectively, and θ is the angle between them. Compare vector product.

U.V = U1V1 + U2V2U3V3
