Actually, I understand the perpendicularness, but wouldn't using that equation find the smallest distance between thevelocityvector and position of theplaneat any time? Not the plane and station?

Therefore you are in the state of Victoria Australia and you compete for a Victorian Certificate of Education. (V.C.E) .

GOOD LUCK FOR THIS.

Yes, yes I am :P Thanks man! :D

This may be a bit too much.

If $\displaystyle \ell_1=P+tD~\&~\ell_2=Q+tE$ are skew lines (neither are parallel nor do they intersect) then the distance between them is:

$\displaystyle \frac{{\left| {\overrightarrow {PQ} \cdot \left( {D \times E} \right)} \right|}}{{\left\| {D \times E} \right\|}}$ - Mar 23rd 2013, 05:48 PMiamapineappleRe: The smallest distance between two vectors?
Is this an actual formula? ^

I've covered the basics of vectors but we'll go into more detail when we do vector calculus.

I have a new question if anyone could help me?

Let g:**R**\ {-13/4 } -->**R**be another function with f[g(x)] = 3 / (4x + 13). Find the rule of g(x). How should I do this!?! - Mar 24th 2013, 02:03 AMiamapineappleRe: The smallest distance between two vectors?
I know that the range of g is a subset of the domain of f, so the function exists, but where to go now?
