What is a non example of a product?

A non-example of a product is where it equals 0. This is called zero-product property. This is the property of two non-zero elements being zero. In chemistry, it would be any substance which is a reactant.


When does the product of 2 integers equal zero?

When one or both of the integers is/are zero.a*b=0 if a=0, b=0, or both a and b are equal to 0. In other words, if one or both integers are zero.

Dot product of two vectors is equal to cross product what will be angle between them?

(A1) The dot product of two vectors is a scalar and the cross product is a vector? ================================== (A2) The cross product of two vectors, A and B, would be [a*b*sin(alpha)]C, where a = |A|; b = |B|; c = |C|; and C is vector that is orthogonal to A and B and oriented according to the right-hand rule (see the related link). The dot product of the two vectors, A and B, would be [a*b*cos(alpha)]. For [a*b*sin(alpha)]C to equal to [a*b*cos(alpha)], we have to have a trivial solution -- alpha = 0 and either a or b be zero, so that both expressions are zeroes but equal. ================================== Of course one is the number zero( scalar), and one is the zero vector. It is a small difference but worth mentioning. That is is to say if a or b is the zero vector, then a dot b must equal zero as a scalar. And similarly the cross product of any vector and the zero vector is the zero vector. (A3) The magnitude of the dot product is equal to the magnitude of the cross product when the angle between the vectors is 45 degrees.


Solve 8x to the zero power?

Any number to the power zero is equal to 1 - except zero to the power zero, which is undefined. So, if x is not equal to zero, the answer is 1.Any number to the power zero is equal to 1 - except zero to the power zero, which is undefined. So, if x is not equal to zero, the answer is 1.Any number to the power zero is equal to 1 - except zero to the power zero, which is undefined. So, if x is not equal to zero, the answer is 1.Any number to the power zero is equal to 1 - except zero to the power zero, which is undefined. So, if x is not equal to zero, the answer is 1.


How many watts equal 0.6 amps?

Point 6 amps equal zero watts. Watts are the product of amps times volts. Without a voltage stated times .6 results in zero watts.

What property do all nonzero numbers have that integers do not?

Of not being equal to zero. Also, of being closed under division.


A young man exerted a force of 9000 newtons on a standstill car but was unable to move it how much work was done?

Work is equal to the product of the applied force and the displacement. Since the displacement is zero, the work is also equal to zero.
