3x3 Cross Product

Calculate cross product of two 3-by-1 vectors


Utilities/Math Operations


The 3x3 Cross Product block computes cross (or vector) product of two vectors, A and B, by generating a third vector, C, in a direction normal to the plane containing A and B, and with magnitude equal to the product of the lengths of A and B multiplied by the sine of the angle between them. The direction of C is that in which a right-handed screw would move in turning from A to B.
