# Finding a Cross Product In Exercises 11-16, find u × v and show that it is orthogonal to both u and v. u =   〈 − 10 ,   0 ,     6 〉 v   =   〈 5 ,   − 3 ,     0 〉

To determine

To calculate: The cross product u×v for the vectors u=10,0,6 and v=5,3,0.

Explanation

Given:

The cross product to be evaluate is u×v. The vectors u and v are u=10,0,6 and v=5,3,0.

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=10i+6k, v=5i3j

The cross product a×b is given by,

a×b=|ijka1a2a3b1b2b3|

Therefore the cross product of vectors u and v is,

u×v=|i
