If the product of two vectors, **a** and **b**, is a vector, **c**, then **c** is called the vector product or cross product of **a** and **b**. The magnitude of the vector product is given by |c| = |a| |b| sinθ, where θ = angle between **a** and **b**. The direction of **c** is perpendicular to the directions of both **a** and **b**. The direction of a vector product can be determined using the right handed screw rule or the right-hand rule.

If the two given vectors,**a** and **b**, are expressed in terms of unit vectors then their vector product is determined as follows:

In the above**i **x** i **= **0**, etc. and **i** x** j **= **k**, etc.

If the two given vectors,
