This page will help you understand the concept of a cross product and how to calculate one.
What is a cross product?
The cross product is an operation between two vectors that returns a vector orthogonal to the two vectors. (In case you forgot orthogonal means that u v = 0). Formally, the cross product takes two input vectors u = u1i + u2j + u3k and v = v1i + v2j + v3k.
It is defined to equal:
What's special about a cross product?
A cross product has six properties that can be useful in different situations.
