4 The Cross Product Many applications in physics, engineering, and geometry involve finding a vector in space that is orthogonal to two given vectors. You will study a product that will yield such a vector. It is called the cross product, and it is most conveniently defined and calculated using the standard unit vector form. Because the cross product yields a vector, it is also called the vector product.
