Vector Product

Vector Product


In mathematics, the Gibbs vector product or cross product is a binary operation between two vectors in three dimensional space.

 The result is a vector perpendicular to the vectors are multiplied, and therefore normal to the plane containing them. Because of their ability to get a vector perpendicular to two other vectors, whose meaning varies according to the angle formed between these two vectors, this operation is frequently applied to solve mathematical, physical or engineering problems.
