    C X D would be perpendicular to C and D. Normalize it. Also - (C X D)

    I mean the cross product of the two vectors

    The vector C X D is always perpendicular to C and D.

    so i just find C x D ?

    but that would be only finding one vector how would i find the other ?

    -C X D = D X C
