Geometrical interpretation of cross product.

Post to:

The cross product of vectors is defined and explained geometrically. It is compared with the area of a parallelogram. The direction of the the cross product of two vectors is calculated with the help of the right hand rule. Why the product of two vectors is not equal to the product of the reverse of the two same vectors, is explained geometrically. The applications of cross products of vectors are also explained through solving some problems.
