# State whether each expression is meaningful. If not, explain why. If so, state whether it is a vector or a scalar.(a) a · (b × c)(b) a × (b · c)(c) a × (b × c)(d) a · (b · c)(e) (a · b) × (c · d)(f) (a × b) · (c × d)

(a)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.

Explanation

Given: a(b×c) .

A minimum of two vectors are required to perform a cross product. The resultant cross product of two vectors is a vector. So, the cross product is also known as vector product.

A minimum of two vectors are required to perform a dot product. The resultant dot product of two vectors is a scalar. So, the dot product is also known as scalar product.

The resultant cross product of (b×c) is vector value

(b)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.

(c)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.

(d)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.

(e)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.

(f)

To determine

whether expression is meaningful or meaningless.
