Advanced Mathematics - Perpendicular vectors
These are vectors that are positioned at right angles to each other.
If the vectors are perpendicular then:
So if vectors are perpendicular, their scalar product is zero. Conversely,
if the scalar product of two vectors is zero, then they are perpendicular.
If is the vector
Hence and are perpendicular vectors .
