Can someone please explain to me The Cross Product of two Vectors? I am very confused.
My book talks about the righthand rule, but does that mean any two vectors would form a perpendicular resultant vector?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the answer to your question is that when you cross any two linearly independent vectors, the resultant is perpendicular to both and the direction of the resultant is determined by the right hand rule. So if a cross b = c...then b cross a = c. The order in which you cross vectors is very important.
