Operator: Vector Dot Product is a Number Spell Piece added by Psi. It provides the dot product of two vectors, which is defined as \vec{v_{1}} \cdot \vec{v_{2}}=||\vec{v_{1}}||\ ||\vec{v_{2}}||\cos(\theta), where \vec{v_{1}} and \vec{v_{2}} are vectors, ||\vec{v_{1}}|| and ||\vec{v_{2}}|| are the magnitudes of the two vectors, and \theta is the angle between the two vectors. For example, two vectors at a 90° angle will have a dot product of 0, while those at a 0° angle will be exactly equal to ||\vec{v_{1}}|| \times ||\vec{v_{2}}||. This result is scalar; it will result in a number value, not another vector. This should not be confused with
Operator: Vector Multiply and
Operator: Vector Cross Product. It is unlocked in the lesson "Trigonometry."
