Dot products are incredibly easy. Multiply the corresponding elements of each vector, then add them all together. You should get a scalar as the answer, which is why the dot product is sometimes called the scalar product.
Can someone please share a link to a site which can show me how to calculate the following:
Given 3 vectors A,B and C, calculate the following:
A.B
Theta AB
2B.3C
2(B.3C)
Which of the following can be calculated:
A.B.C
A.(B.C)
A.(B+C)
3.A
Calculate:
V_{1}.V_{1} (dot product of a vector with itself)
If V_{1} and V_{2} are perpendicular, calculate V_{1} .V _{2}
If V_{1} and V_{2} are parallel, calculate V _{1} .V_{2}
I know a lot of this stuff is fairly straight forward but I'm having trouble finding information about the correct methods to calculate what's asked and the provided course materials are very incomplete.
Thanks

From what I've seen so far, yes you are quiet correct. I did however attempt a number of them without seeing a worked example and some how got it wrong. I would like to see some worked examples rather than do the online test based on guess work alone.
