**4. SCALAR (DOT) PRODUCT OF TWO VECTORS
**

1. The scalar product or (dot product) : The scalar product of two vectors a and b is a scalar and is

defined as the product of the magnitude of a and b and the cosine of the angle θ between them.

i.e., a . b =| a | . | b | .cosθ , 0 ≤ θ < π .

2. Two non zero vectors a and b are perpendicular if and only if their dot product is zero.

| a.b | (a . b )b

3. Projection of a and b is the orthogonal projection of a and b is or ( a .b̂)b̂ .

|b| | b |2

(a. b ) b

The component vector of a along b is or ( a .b̂)b̂ .

| b |2

(a . b ) b

The component vector of a perpendicular to b is a − .

| b |2

Note : The component vector of a along b is equal to the orthogonal projection of a on b .

4. If a = a1i + a 2 j + a 3 k , b = b1i + b 2 j + b 3 k , then

i) a . b = a1b1 + a 2 b 2 + a 3 b 3

ii) If θ is the angle between a and b , then cosθ =

a.b a 1b1 + a 2 b 2 + a 3 b 3

**iv) a . b = b . a (dot product is commutative)

v) a .(- b ) = ( − a ).b = -( a . b )

vi) λ a .μ b = λμ( a . b ) = μ a .λ b

vii) a . a =| a | 2 = a 2

viii) ( a ± b ) 2 =| a | 2 + | b | 2 ±2 a . b

ix) ( a + b ) 2 = ( a − b ) 2 = 2( a 2 + b 2 ) and

( a + b ) 2 − ( a − b ) 2 = 4 a.b

x) ( a + b + c ) 2 =

a 2 + b 2 + c 2 + 2( a.b ) + 2( b.c ) + 2( c.a )

xi) a 2 − b 2 = ( a + b ).( a − b )

xii) a.( b + c ) = a.b + a.c , dot product is left distributive over vector addition.

xiii) ( a + b ).c = a.c + b.c , dot product is right distributive over vector addition.

5. For the unit orthognormal vectors i, j, k

i) i.i = j. j = k . k = 1

ii) i. j = j.k = k . i = 0

6. For any vector r, r = (r.i )i + (r. j) j + (r.k )k

7. Work done by a force F in displacing a particle from A to B is given by W = F.AB

8. If the length of the perpendicular from the origin be p ( > 0) and n̂ be the unit vector perpendicular

to the plane then the equation of the plane is r.n̂ = p .

9. The vector equation of a plane through a point a and perpendicular to a unit vector n̂ is

(r − a ).n̂ = 0 .

10. If π1 and π2 be two planes whose equations are r1.m1 = q1, r2 .m2 = q 2 , then the angle between the

⎛ m .m ⎞

planes is Cos −1 ⎜⎜ 1 2

⎟⎟ .

⎝ | m1 | . | m 2 | ⎠

11. Perpendicular distance from the origin to the plane (r − a ).n̂ = 0 is a .n̂ , where a is the position

vector of a point in the plane and n̂ is the unit vector perpendicular to the plane.
