# What is the cross product of #[2, 1, -4]# and #[4,3,6] #?

(18,-28,2)

The simplest way to compute a three-dimensional cross product is to use the "cover up method." First and foremost, keep in mind that the cross product will always result in a new vector; therefore, if your answer is a scalar quantity, you have done something incorrectly.

As shown below, arrange the two vectors in a 3 x 3 determinant:

I, J, K, and I || 2 1 – 4 || 4 3 – 6 |

Next, covering the upper row and leftmost column starting from the left, you are left with: | 1 4 | | 3 6 |

To determine your i term, take this determinant:

For the j term, repeat the process by covering the middle column; for the k term, cover the right column.

This results in:

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- If a projectile is shot at a velocity of #18 m/s# and an angle of #pi/3#, how far will the projectile travel before landing?
- A projectile is shot from the ground at an angle of #pi/6 # and a speed of #9 m/s#. Factoring in both horizontal and vertical movement, what will the projectile's distance from the starting point be when it reaches its maximum height?
- If the equation of projection is #y=ax-bx^2#, find initial velocity(#u#) and angle of projection(#theta#)?
- A projectile is shot at an angle of #pi/8 # and a velocity of # 27 m/s#. How far away will the projectile land?
- What is the projection of #<4,-1,6 ># onto #<1,3,-2 >#?
