# Finding a Cross Product In Exercises 11-14, find u   × v and show that it is orthogonal to both u and v. u = 〈 − 5 , 2 , 2 〉 v = 〈 0 , 1 , 8 〉

To determine

To calculate: The cross product u×v for the vectors u=1,1,2 and v=0,1,0.

Explanation

Given:

The cross product to be evaluate is u×v. The vectors u and v are u=1,1,2 and v=0,1,0.

Formula used:

The cross product of two vector a=a1i+a2j+a3j and b=b1i+b2j+b3k is:

a×b=|ijka1a2a3b1b2b3|

If two vectors a=a1i+a2j+a3j and b=b1i+b2j+b3k are orthogonal to each other than their dot product is zero that is,

ab=a1b1+a2b2+a3b3=0

Calculation:

The provided vectors are,

u=i+j+2k, v=j

The cross product a×b is given by,

a×b=|ijka1a2a3b1b2b3|

Therefore the cross product of vectors u and v is,

u×
