Hi,
Yes, this is possible.
Vectors are represented as lists, so a vector v will be represented as
v={vx,vy,vz}
and vector u as
u={ux,uy,uz}
dot product is simply writing u.v
and cross product is Cross[u,v]

If you need another system of coordinates in place of the Cartesian that I used here, you better upload the VectorAnalysis package
<<Calculus`VectroAnalysis`
use the help for further details
good luck
