This applet is an interactive demonstration of the cross product developed for introductory physics. Students can alter the magnitude and direction of the two vectors being multiplied. The cross product is displayed as a red vector emerging from the plane defined by the first two vectors.

This item is part of a larger collection of simulation-based physics modules sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
