Take the scalar multiple of your equation, (call it eq(1)), with and note that the triple scalar product is zero. Call this eq(2).

Take the vector multiple of eq(1) with expand the triple vector product and substitute using eq(2). Call this eq(3).

Eliminate the vector product between eq's (1) and (3), and solve for - Aug 9th 2013, 05:54 PMKristen111111111111111111Re: Vectors
