Dot product; Have units?

  1. Feb 19, 2004 #1
    Hi, I got a simple question, "dot product" have units?
    I mean, if A=(Ax+Ay+Az)N and B=(Bx+By+Bz)(cm/s) , the units of A.B will be N.(cm/s)
    Thanks,
    Cali

    [tex]
    \vec{A} \cdot \vec{B} = A_x B_x + A_y B_y + A_z B_z
    [/tex]

    So clearly, the units of the dot product is the product of the units of A and the units of B.
