# Extensive Definition

Coincident is a geometric term that pertains to
the relationship between two vectors.
Vectors consist of a "magnitude" and a "direction". Vectors can be
said to be coincident when their direction is the same though the
magnitude may be different; that is to say, they lie one on top of
the other. If two coincident vectors were to be normalized, the
resulting vectors would be identical. The dot product
of two coincident vectors is the product of their magnitudes. The
cross
product of two coincident vectors is a vector of all zeros.
