Expert Answer:

In general, distributive law means that you get the same answer when you multiply a number by a group of numbers added together as when you do each multiplication separately
 
Distributive law in vector space can be defined in terms of the dot product or cross product. 
 
So, it can be either - 
 
a. (u + w) = a.u + a.w 
or a x (u + w) = a x u + a x w 
 
where a, u and w are three different vectors.
