Volume of a parallelepiped u= [1,0,-4], v= [0, -3, 2], w= [2, -2, 0].
|dw:1362365653376:dw|
scalar triple rings a bell
do u cross v, and dot it to w
or any combination that suits you best :)
so the order of the combination doesnt matter @amistre64
the order doesnt not matter. the volume of a squashed looking cube is the same no matter what you take for the base and height. u.(vxw) v.(wxu) w.(uxv) all are fine. make sure you strip off any negatives at the end since its the absolute value that is important
