I don't stand how this cross product work. Need explaining.
i j k i j k
2 2 -2 = 2 -2 - 2 -2 - 2 2
2 -2 2 -2 2 2 2 2 -2

1. I can't read your formatting.

Just recall that the cross product is just the determinant of the 3x3 array with i,j,k as the top row and the vector components as the other two rows.

google cross-product for many examples and discussions.

I am asked this: How can you do the cross product of two-dimensional 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?
