Two vectors are perpendicular if their dot product is zero, and given a fixed vector in three-dimensional space, there are an infinite number of vectors perpendicular to it.

For example, <3,2,0> is perpendicular to v because <3,2,0><-2,3,-5>=0.

Another example would be <0,5,3>. These two vectors are also linearly independent.
