Quick Reference

The product of two vectors U and V, with components U1, U2, U3 and V1, V2, V3, respectively, given by:

U×V = (U2V3U3V2)i + (U3V1U1V3)j + (U1V2U2V1)k

It is itself a vector, perpendicular to both U and V, and of length UVsinθ, where U and V are the lengths of U and V, respectively, and θ is the angle between them. Compare scalar product.
