##### *2020-02-27 20:37*

The cross product a b is defined as a vector c that is perpendicular (orthogonal) to both a and b, with a direction given by the righthand rule and a magnitude equal to the area of the parallelogram that the vectors span.Nov 04, 2016 The cross product will always be another vector that is perpendicular to both of the original vectors. The direction of the cross product is found using the right hand rule, while the magnitude of the cross product is given by: Torque is the tendency of a force to cause an object to rotate. cross product of two vectors right hand rule
