Angle between two vectors calculator computes the angle between two vectors in a 3D space. A 3D Vector is a vector geometry in 2-dimensions running from point A (tail) to point B (head). Each vector has a magnitude (or length) and direction and can be calculated by taking the square root of the sum of each components in space.

### Vectors Lesson Note

#### What are vectors?

Vectors are quantities defined by magnitude and direction. The geometrical representation of a vector is by means of an arrow whose length, to some scale, represents the magnitude of the physical quantity and whose direction indicates the direction of the vector.

#### What is scalar?

A scalar quantity is one which is completely defined by its magnitude. To distinguish the magnitude of a vector a from its direction we use the mathematical notation

#### Magnitude of a Vector

If the components of a vector in a rectangular coordinate system are known. To distinguish the magnitude of a vector a from its direction we use the mathematical notation. Since the vector and its components form a right-angled triangle, we have the magnitude of a vector defined as where  r = magnitude or modulus of Z and is written as mod Z or |z|. Note the actual value of r is determined by using Pythagoras' theorem

#### Argument of a Vector, θ

The θ is called the argument (or amplitude) of Z and is written as arg Z. By trigonometry on triangle, argument or amplitude of Z is derived from the division of imaginary path by real path on y and x axis respectively

#### Steps to Find the Angle between Two Vectors in 3D space.

To find the angle between two vectors in 3D space, we can use the dot product formula:

θ = cos⁻¹((𝑎•𝑏) / (||𝑎|| ||𝑏||))

where 𝑎 and 𝑏 are the two vectors and • represents the dot product operation. ||𝑎|| and ||𝑏|| represent the magnitudes of the vectors.

• 1. Identify the two vectors 𝑎 and 𝑏 in the problem.

• 2. Calculate the dot product (𝑎•𝑏) and the magnitudes ||𝑎|| and ||𝑏||.

• 3. Substitute these values into the formula θ = cos⁻¹((𝑎•𝑏) / (||𝑎|| ||𝑏||)) and solve for θ.

• 4. Check your answer by substituting it back into the original problem or using alternative methods to verify its accuracy.

• 5. If necessary, convert the angle from radians to degrees or vice versa, depending on the problem's requirements.
