1.What is the physical meaning of product of vectors?

2.We can take product of 2 vectors but we can't divide 2 vectors.Why?

Answers : (1)


Dear Nitin,

The physical meaning of vector is, its a kind of pointer which shows the direction of motion of a particular object, assosiated with the magnitude(with how much speed lets say) of motion of it.

if you want to say a car is moving parallel to me at 5 kmph.The vector quantity is 5i(cap).

You can divide two vectors because you can divide one direction by other.
