This online calculator calculates the cross product of two vectors given by their components. ## Use of Cross Product Calculator
1 - Enter the components of each of the two vectors, as real numbers in decimal from and press "Calculate Cross Product". The answer is a vector w.
## Definition of Cross Product of two Vectors
Let u and v be two vectors given by their 3 components as follows
Example 1
## Applications of the Cross ProductThe cross product of two vectors has applications in mathematics, physics, engineering, ... Some examples are presented below.Example 2 One of the formulas to find the area of a triangle with sides having lengths |u| and |v| and an angle between then equal to θ is (1 / 2) |u| . |v| sin(θ) Also, it can be shown that that | u × v | = |u||v| sin(θ)We can therefore conclude that the area of a parallelogram spanned by vectors U and v is equal to the magnitude of the cross product of vectors u and v.
