`W = `

The **Vector Cross Product** (**V** x **U**) computes the resulting vector (W) that is normal to the plane defined by two vectors (V and U) in three dimensional space.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**V**): Enter the x, y and z components of**V**separated by commas (e.g. 2,3,4) - (
**U**): Enter the x, y and z components of**U**separated by commas (e.g. 1,2,3)

**Vector Cross Product (W):** The calculator returns the cross product vector (e.g. 1,-2,1)
