Hello There

I have two existing vectors. I wish to construct a third vector which is in the same plane as the existing 2 vectors, and makes a specific angle with one of them. What method could I use to do this?

If we call your two vectors

**u**and**v**then the vector you want will be**u**+ a**v**with a chosen to achieve the required angle. You can use the scalar product**u**. (**u**+ a**v**) to help you.
