How can We Devide 2 vectors? and what is the result? is it a scalar or another vector?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if we said:

[tex]\frac{\vec{E_1}}{\vec{E_2}}[/tex]

What the result would be if the unit vectors or not equal or opposite? if they are then we'll get a scalar,

Can we say:

[tex]\frac{\vec{E_1}}{\vec{E_2}} = \vec{E_1} \cdot \frac{1}{\vec{E_2}}[/tex]

Can this be a dot product? then we'll get a scalar also !! and if it's like this, what's the defenition of a vector inverse?
