Hello
I want to demonstrate a equation of Vector image on another vector (A on B) So i go this steps and as we know so change the equation but in my equation A is (vector scale) not a (Vector)!!!! what is my problem?

You have [itex]\overline{A}[/itex], [itex]A[/itex], and [itex]\left\overline{A}\right[/itex]. I understand that [itex]\overline{A}[/itex] is a vector and that [itex]\left\overline{A}\right[/itex] is its length but what is [itex]A[/itex]?

Thanks for your replay
A and A both of them are length of A vector (in electromagnetic books we assume that A=A for easy to write)

Vector image on another vector
Then pick one and stick with it. Similarly, don't swap between upper and lower case.

I rewrite the Steps.
main formula: steps: as we know and so but in my equation A is (vector length) not a (Vector)!!!! what is my problem?

Oh Baby,
What are you doing? You are taking the dot product of vector A and vector B which results in a scalar. Then you are taking the dot product of that scalar with vector B. That makes no sense. I think you want the dot product of vector A and vector B/B. B/B is the unit vector in the B direction. Ratch
