If the two vectors \( \vec{a} \) and \( \vec{b} \) are given by \( \vec{a} = 4i + 3j \) and \( \vec{b} = -3i + j, \) what is the difference between the length of the projection of \( \vec{b} \) onto \( \vec{a} \) and the length of the projection of \( \vec{a} \) onto \( \vec{b}? \)

A line \(l\) passes through the point \( P(0, 4).\) Let \( A\) and \(B\) be the two intersection points of \(l\) and the circle \( x^2 + y^2= 64 .\) If \(O\) is the origin and \( Q \) is the intersection point of the two tangent lines at points \( A\) and \( B, \) what is the result of the dot product \( \overrightarrow{OP} \cdot \overrightarrow{OQ}?\)
