Is the shortest distance between these two vectors when a line perpendicular to a meets vector b, or when a line perpendicular to vector b meets vector a?

Thanks

Hi nokia8650!

The length of one line is a.cosθ, and of the other is b.cosθ.

But those are the distances between one

There is no such thing as the distance between two
