# Find a · b.10. | a | = 80, | b | = 50, the angle between a and b is 3π/4

To determine

To find: A dot product between a and b .

Explanation

Given:

|a|=80 , |b|=50 and θ=3π4 .

Formula:

Write the expression to find ab in terms of θ .

ab=|a||b|cosθ (1)

Here,

|a| is the magnitude of vector a,

|b| is the magnitude of vector b, and

θ is the angle between vectors a and b
