  1. vector product

    The vector product, also known as the cross product, is a binary operation on two vectors in three-dimensional space. It is a vector valued, resulting in a vector that is perpendicular (orthogonal) to the plane containing the two input vectors. The vector product is anti-commutative and its magnitude is equivalent to the area of the parallelogram spanned by the two input vectors. The direction of the resultant vector is given by the right-hand rule. The output vector's magnitude is found using the formula |a x b|=|a||b|sin(θ), where a and b are the magnitudes of respective vectors and θ is the angle between them.
