Properties of the Dot Product

Let u, v, and w be vectors and let c be a scalar.

1. u v = v u

2

2. u u = |u|

3. 0 u = 0

4. u (v + w) = uv + uw

(u + v) w = uw + vw

5. (cu) v = u (cv) = c(uv)

If 0 is the angle between nonzero

vectors u and v, then

The dot product angles between vectors orthogonal vectors

Definition: Orthogonal Vectors

The vectors u and v are orthogonal if

and only if u v = 0.

  • The terms “orthogonal” and “perpendicular”

    are nearly synonymous (with the exception

    of the zero vector)

Definition: Vector Projection

The vector projection of u = PQ onto a nonzero vector v = PS

is the vector PR determined by dropping a perpendicular from

Q to the line PS.

Thus, u can be broken into components PR and RQ:

u = PR + RQ
