Find the angles between the following pairs of vectors
(1)3i+2j-6k,4i-3j+k
(2)2i-3j+k,3i-j-2k

  • algebra - ,

    1.
    your 2 vectors are [3,2,-6] and [4,-3,1]
    using the dot product

    12 - 6 - 6 = √(9+4+36) √(16+9+1) cosØ, where Ø is the angle between them
    0 = .... , no point to go further.
    I can see cosØ = 0
    Ø = 90° or π/2 radians

    2.

    6 + 3 - 2 = √(4+9+1) √(9+1+4) cosØ
    7 = √14√14cosØ
    7 = 14cosØ
    cosØ = 1/2
    Ø = 60° or π/3
