# What is the projection of <-6,3,2 > onto <1,4,-3 >?

Jan 9, 2017

No projection possible

#### Explanation:

The vector projection of $\vec{b}$ over $\vec{a}$ is

=(veca.vecb)/(∥veca∥^2)veca

The dot product is veca.vecb=〈-6,3,2〉.〈1,4,-3〉=-6+12-6=0

The vectors $\vec{a}$ and $\vec{b}$ are perpendicular, it's not possible to make a projection.
