# Cross Product Define the cross product of vectors u and v.

To determine

The definition of the cross product of vectors u and v.

Explanation

If u and v are vectors in space that are nonzero and nonparallel, then the cross product of the vectors represents a vector that is perpendicular to the plane of the vectors u and v and its directions is given by the right hand thumb rule. So, direction of the vector u×v is in the direction of the right hand thumb when the fingers goes from the vector u to v.

The cross product of two vector u=u1i+u2j+u3j and v=v1i+v2j+v3k is given by,
