The magnitude of the cross product, | B C | , can be thought of as the area of a parallelogram formed by B and C (see Fig. 1). The area of a parallelogram with sides length | B | and | C | and interior angle is | B || C | sin , which is also the magnitude of the cross product | B C | . Taking the dot product with A introduces a third dimension of length | A | cos , where a is the angle between A and B C . Thus, the magnitude of the triple product is the same as the volume of the parallelepiped illustrated in Fig. 1. g) The triple product has units of m 2 T / s where 1T = 1 V s m 2 so the triple product has units of 1V = 1 J C . Thus, the triple product describes the work done per Columb of charge that moves through a magnetic eld B between two points separated by vector A at velocity C . 1 ECE 329 Fall 2010 B C A BC Figure 1: Parallelepiped formed by triple product A ( B C ) Figure 2: Charges and electric elds for Problem 2 2. We know Q 1 = 8 , so Q 2 =- Q 1 / 2 =- 4 . The electric eld at the point P 3 is the superposition...
