Problem: a) For the two vectors A?  and B?  in the figure (Figure 1) , find the scalar product A?B? b) Find the magnitude of the vector product AxB

FREE Expert Solution

Scalar product:

AB=ABcosθ

Cross product:

A×B=(AyBz-AzBy) i^+(AzBx-AxBz) j^+(AxBy-AyBx) k^

Magnitude:

|A|=Ax2+Ay2+Az2

a)

The angle between A and B = (180 - 70.0°) + 30.0° = 140.0°
