Explain the "right-hand rule" for vector cross products



Explain the “right-hand rule” for vector cross products.


we use the right hand rule to find the direction of the cross product of our vector cross product. When you place your right hand along the first vector do it in a way that when you curl your fingers they curl towards the second vector. The product of the vectors will always be in the direction your thumb is pointing. Exactly perpendicular to the plane created by the two vectors
