2. We have two vectors that line in the xy plane. If we take the crossproduct of those two
vectors we know that
a. the magnitude of the crossproduct will always be equal to the product of the
magnitudes of the two vectors.
b. the magnitude of the crossproduct will always be greater than the product of the
magnitudes of the two vectors.
c. the magnitude of the crossproduct will always be less than the product of the
magnitudes of the two vectors.
d. the crossproduct vector will be perpendicular to the first vector and in the xy
plane.
e. the crossproduct vector will be in either the +z or z direction.
Is the answer E

yes, since it is perpendicular to both vectors.

I am asked this: How can you do the cross product of twodimensional vectors. Well I would have to guess that you just add a 0 in order to follow the cross product method, but this way there is no third component...is this right?
