Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

### Property of Modulus in dot product

What is the modulus of dot product | vec p cdot vec q |?

• =|p| xx |q|
• <=|p| xx |q|
• <=|p| xx |q|
• >=|p| xx |q|

The answer is '<=|p| xx |q|'.
vec p cdot vec q = |p||q|cos theta
| cos theta |<= 1, so
|p||q|cos theta <= |p||q|
| vec p cdot vec q |<=|p| xx |q|

The same can be understood with geometrical meaning as given in figure. vec q = vec a + vec b
|vec q| >= |vec a|
|vec p cdot vec q | = |p||a|
|vec p cdot vec q | <= |p||q|

•  Modulus of dot product is less than or equal to the product of modulus of the vectors.

Modulus Property of Dot Product: For any vectors vec p and vec q,
|vec p cdot vec q | <= |p||q|
