As of version 9.0, vector analysis functionality is built into Mathematica
- To use , you first need to load the Vector Analysis Package using Needs["VectorAnalysis`"].
- is computed by converting and to Cartesian coordinates and then forming the dot product.
Dot product of two Cartesian vectors:
Verify that a pair of vectors are orthogonal:
Dot product of vectors in cylindrical coordinates:
Compare with the result from conversion to Cartesian coordinates:
