The Vector Area calculator Vectors U and V in three dimensions computes the area swept between two vectors (V and U) in Euclidean three dimensional space. This is the light blue area in the graphic.
INSTRUCTIONS: Enter the following in meters:
Area between Vectors (A): The calculator returns area in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The Area between two Vectors (A) calculator computes the two dimensional area between two 3D vectors. The formula to compute the area is:
A = 1/2 ⋅ |V| ⋅ |U| ⋅ sin(α)
This formula lets the user enter two three-dimensional vectors (V and U) with X, Y and Z components. Note theof two is equal to the cosine of the .
