What is the meaning of Cross Product?
In Mathematics, the cross product is also known as the vector product, is a binary operation of two vectors in the three dimensional space. It is a particular type of vector multiplication in which two vectors will result in another final vector.
Formula of cross product:
The formula to calculate the cross product of two vectors is given below:
a × b = ||a|| ||b|| sin(θ) n
a, b are the two vectors
θ is the angle between two vectors
|| || represents the magnitude
n is a unit vector which is at right angles to
both the vectors a and b
Right-Hand thumb rule:
If you hold you your right hand and angle the thumb, index finger, and mid finger at 90 degrees, this is called the Right-hand thumb rule.
The index and mid finger here represent vectors a and b the cross product of these vectors is represented by the thumb finger, i.e., a x b
