1. How much work is done by a force, in Newtons, represented by the vector F = (4, 7, 1) if it results in a displacement, in metres, represented by the vector delta(I'm assuming it's delta but the symbol is really small) S = (5, 3, 8).

2.If vectors A and B are perpendicular and A = (4, – 4, 8) and

B = (5, k, 2k), find k.

For the first one I tried applying the cross product to make a new vector until I remembered that finding the Work for F and the new vector would result in a dot product of 0, because of the fact that cross products are perpendicular to both vectors. After realizing it wouldn't work I tried calculating the distance between the vectors but this didn't help either. I'm stumped on both of these and any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks alot!
