(This means that if we curl the fingers of the right hand from a to b, then the thumb points in the direction of a × b.)**Find the cross product of vectors (by hand and with a**calculator) u = 3i +2j – k v = i + 2k Note: To find a cross product on the TI89 Press 2nd 5 (math) – 4 matrix – L Vector ops - crossP crossP([3,2,-1],[1,0,2]) Definition of Cross Product of Two Vectors in Space**For an explanation and animation of the cross product visit:**http://www.math.umn.edu/~nykamp/m2374/readings/crossprod/ Definition of Cross Product of Two Vectors in Space**Example 1**• Find the cross product of the two vectors • u = i – 2j + k v = 3i + j – 2k • Find u x v • Find v x u • Find v x v**Example 1**Find the cross product of the two vectors u = i – 2j + k v = 3i + j – 2k Find u x v Find v x u Find v x v**Example 1 continued**• u = i – 2j + kv = 3i + j – 2k • Find a unit vector that is orthogonal to u and v**Example 5**• u = 3i – 5j + k • v = 2j – 2k • w = 3i + j + k • Find the volume of the parallelepiped having vectors u, v and w for sides**Example 5 hint**This works because bxc yields a vector perpendicular to a and b in with the magnitude of the area of the parallelogram formed (the base of the parallel piped) bxc points in the direction of the height of the parallelepiped when dotted with a this gives the magnitude of bxc times the portion of a that points in the direction of bxc (the direction of the height )in other words this gives us the same as the formula Bh**Q: Why should you never make a math teacher angry?**A: You might get a cross product Q: What do you get when you cross an elephant and a banana?
