In the construction of a bridge, the support cables form specific angles to each other. The angle between two vectors representing the tensile force in two cables can influence the load distribution of the structure.
Data:
U=(3,4,0)
V=(1,2,2)
The scalar product is used to calculate the cosine of the angle θ between two vectors, according to the formula:
