The Vector Dot Product



We learned how to add and subtract vectors, and we learned how to multiply vectors by scalars, but how can we multiply two vectors together? There are two ways to do this, and one of them is called the dot product. Let’s learn how to find the dot product of two vectors now!

  1. Wow this lecture is very simpler and zero time wasted.
    In less time this makes worthy use of time.
    Thank you

  2. I think a whole world of people molested by their giftless maths teachers at school and college gathered here to find relief and finally understand what the teachers were not able to explain. Thanks for bliss man. Amazing job.

  3. I understood the topic somehow when I read it from the book, but this video gave a more intuitive and clearer explanation! Awesome job, Professor, thank you so much. <3

  4. Ok, so we can multiply vectors in a way that gives a scalar value. Was this video meant to show how to derive an angle between two vectors using a dot product? What does it physically mean to compute the dot product other than to derive the angles between the two vectors???

  5. But what does mean the scalar product in real life.
    What the scientists were thinking about when they decide to make scalar product

  6. I just don't understand why you can't use the dot product rule with normal vectors. I think that most people come to this video because they want to use the dot product for 2 dimensional vectors

  7. Im a VFX artist and ive only known how to input and output my functions to get result and now thanks to you im learning whats actually going on in my code.
