Covariant vectors vs reciprocal vectors

  1. Jul 22, 2008 #1
    If there is a contravariant vector


    with a reciprocal vector system where


    would the vector expressed in the reciprocal vector system be a covariant vector?

    Is there any connection between the reciprocal vector system of a covariant vector and a

    covariant vector?

    Nevermind, I think I understand it now.
