Hello, Spec!

I have a start on the problem . . . but that's all.

Find the angle between and

Let be the angle between

Since . , we have: .

. . Similarly, we have: .

And I'm certain those will be used in subsequent calculations.

I solved it, but it wasn't pretty.

I'm not going to post all calculations, but that's basically how I solved it (and using the second dot product formula above). - Apr 9th 2009, 02:06 AMrunning-gag
That's it ! (Clapping)
