2.Find vectors v*w if vector v = -3 vector i 4 vector j - 8 vector k and vector w = 2 vector i + 6 vector j + 4 vector k.

Do you mean vw or vŚw ?

**Steve**, Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 5:24pmi assume you mean cross-product

I'll do #1:

vxw =

| i j k|

|5 -4 4 |

|-6 3 -2|

= 32i-28j+26k

You can make things a lot more readable by just saying you're dealing with vectors. Then you can forget about all those words and just write the values, as in my answer.

**batmo**, Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 6:23pmno i dont mean cross product.

3 4 2

14 9 4

5+ 3 4

4 14 9

these are the possible answers. all with IJK following of course.

**Steve**, Friday, August 31, 2012 at 5:10amIn that case, say dot product.

5i-4j+4k -5i+3j-2k = -25-12-8 = -45

you say you don't mean cross product, but you give vectors for answers.

dot product of two vectors is just a number.

I'm afraid I don't know what operation you are using.
