The dot product is a type of vector multiplication. The dot product of two vectors is defined by the relation θ cos B A B A = If the vectors are expressed in terms of their components, an equivalent way of calculating the dot product is z z y y x x B A B A B A B A + + =

k-work, dK, measures the kinetic energy transfer to a particle by some interaction. It is defined by the relation r d F p d v dK = = Note that dK, like K, is a scalar and is measured in the same units as kinetic energy.
