Find the angle between the vectors with direction ratios proportional to 2,3,–6 and 3,–4,5.
Let us assume the direction ratios of vectors be (r1,r2,r3) and (r4,r5,r6).
⇒ (r1,r2,r3) = (2,3,–6)
⇒ (r4,r5,r6) = (3,–4,5)
We know that the angle between the vectors with direction ratios proportional to (a1,b1,c1) and (a2,b2,c2) is given by:
Using the above formula we calculate the angle between the vectors.
Let be the angle between the two vectors given in the problem.
∴ The angle between two given vectors is .
