    Python script to find drag force on a 2D object given differential pressure vectors

    I am in need of a python program to calculate the drag force on a 2D object, given differential pressure acting on the object-- this will have to be calculated either manually or (hopefully) by the code. I have the exact location of each pressure vector via a .dat file, and would like to know...

    Can only vectors be multiplied in Euclidean Space?

    After googling I could see vector product and scalar product in Euclidean Space. But can scalar be multiplied by vector in Euclidean space? If it can then I have a conclusion from the previous post. If so we can conclude that the direction does not change when a scalar is multiplied by vector...
