Note: B = B ( cos β i + sin β j)

B′ = B ( cos β i − sin β j) C = C ( cos α i + sin α j)
By definition:

B × C = BC sin (α − β ) B′ × C = BC sin (α + β )

(1) (2)

Now ... B × C = B ( cos β i + sin β j) × C ( cos α i + sin α j) = BC ( cos β sin α − sin β cos α ) k and (3)

B′ × C = B ( cos β i − sin β j) × C ( cos α i + sin α j)
= BC ( cos β sin α + sin β cos α ) k (4)

Equating the magnitudes of B × C from equations (1) and (3) yields: BC sin (α − β ) = BC ( cos β sin α − sin β cos α ) Similarly, equating the magnitudes of B′ × C from equations (2) and (4) yields: BC sin (α + β ) = BC ( cos β sin α + sin β cos α ) Adding equations (5) and (6) gives: sin (α − β ) + sin (α + β ) = 2cos β sin α or sin α cos β = 1 1 sin (α + β ) + sin (α − β ) 2 2 (6) (5)
