Dot Product and Orthogonality The Norm Dot Product Properties The Angles Between Two Vectors The norm or length of a vector Let v = ( v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v n ) be a vector in R n . We define its norm or length by the formula v = v 2 1 + v 2 2 + . . . + v 2 n . Compare with the usual distance in R 2 or R 3 . Previous Slide Back Forward Next Slide

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
