The dot here means dot product right? cause if it meant multiply it wouldn't be a prob, it would just be the product rule.
Hi Jhevon,
You are right. I got this part. It is actually very simple. Thank you very much.
what about the below part :
use
d/dt(rsub1(t) dot rsub2(t) ) = r'sub1(t) dot r'sub2(t) + rsub1(t) dot r'sub2(t)
to show that for a differentiable 3-space vector valued function r, the graph of r lies on a sphere centered at the orgin if and only if r(t) and r'(t) are orthogonal.
