vector product of a vector and a scalar?
 
Hello is it possible to do a vector product like below, if is a scalar?



Is this same as a scalar product like the one below?

Re: vector product of a vector and a scalar?
 
If b is a scalar, neither cross product or dot product applies. All you can do is multiply each coordinate of the vector by b.
