Transformations of this formula can be used to find power

series representations of some functions... but Taylor series represent a much easier method. For instance, take

converges than it is to determine its sum.

Vector Operations

Scalar Triple Product of ~a, ~b, and ~c:

~a = hax , ay , az i
~b = hbx , by , bz i

~a (~b ~c)

Note:
in terms of components of unit vectors i, j and k.

The scalar triple product is the volume of the parallepiped

formed by ~a, ~b, and ~c. If ~a, ~b, and ~c are co-planar, their
scalar triple product is equal to zero.
