Chapter 1
Introduction to Vectors
1.2 Lengths and Dot Products
 REVIEW OF THE KEY IDEAS
1. The dot product v•w multiplies each component vi by wi and adds all viwi.
2. The length ||v|| is the square root of v·v. Then u = v/||v|| is a unit vector: length 1.
3. The dot product is v·w= 0 when vectors v and w are perpendicular.
4. The cosine of  \theta  (the angle between any nonzero v and w) never exceeds I:
      Cosine   cos\theta  =  \frac{v.w}{||v|| ||w||}   Schwarz inequality   |v.w|  \le  ||v|| ||w||
