Show that (i) | ~ a · ~ b | ≤ | ~ a || ~ b | . If we have equality, what can you say about ~ a and ~ b ? Solution: By the definition of dot product we know that | ~a · ~ b | = | ~a || ~ b | cos θ = | ~a || ~ b || cos θ | Since 0 ≤ | cos θ | ≤ 1 | ~a · ~ b | ≤ | ~a || ~ b | If we have equality, | cos θ | = 1. Thus, θ = 0 or θ = π ....
