This lesson page will explain how to project a vector onto another vector. Here are the sections within this lesson page:
The formula for calculating the projection of a vector onto another vector is this.
The left side of the equation is read, "The projection of vector b onto vector a." The steps for using this formula are demonstrated within the video found in the next section.
This video reveals what the formula is, provides two examples, and explains the graphical representation.
