    A New Product, called Geometric Product is Introduced in the space of Multivectors; using Dot and Wedge Products. Two cases will be studied, first is Kepler's Problem - where Angular Momentum Bivector is used instead of usual Vector, and simplify the Problem. The Other Problem is in the Spinning Tops, where Rotor is used instead of usual Euler Angles. The Rotor is more Intrinsic than Euler Angles, because it can describe spin about the axis of the Top.
