Comparative study of Mixed product and quaternion product

  • Shah Alam
Article

Abstract

Mixed number is the sum of a scalar and a vector. The quaternion can also be written as the sum of a scalar and a vector but the product of mixed numbers and the product of quaternions are different. Here we studied the Mixed product which is derived from the product of mixed numbers and the quaternion product which is derived from the product of quaternions. It was observed that Mixed product is more consistent with Physics than that of quaternion product.
