In this article (and video above), I solve a FE mathematics exam prep question similar to one you might encounter during the FE Exam, to give you a better understanding of what you can expect during the exam. These types of questions and answers will help you prepare for your FE Exam and help you get a better understanding of what to expect during the exam.
I also provide tips for how to visualize questions like this and how to to find the right equations in the reference handbook, which is critical to exam success.
Which of the following expressions is equal to the angle between two planes whose normals are given by V1 and V2?
In addition to this solution, you should sketch out the problem (see my sketch) in the video to make it easier to decide which equations you will need. Also, searching for the word “vectors” in the FE reference handbook, will bring you to the right equation. Knowing which words to search for is key to solving these problems.
