Cross product is the product of two vectors that results in another vector normal to the plane of the two vectors .

Properties :

The resulting vector is normal to both the vectors ( whose cross product was carried out ) & the direction is given by right hand thumb rule .

It is not commutative .

It is distributive when taken in order .

its magnitude is given by A X B = | ABsin(theta) | where theta is the angle between A & B .

The cross product of any two parallel vectors is zero since sin 0 = 0 .

Hi!
The cross product of two vectors that results in another vector is known as the cross product of vectors.
The properties of the cross product are:
It includes distributivity.
It includes multiplication by scalars.
The length of the cross product of two vectors is equal to the area of a parallelogram, determined by two vectors.
