I was doing a question in a test involving the system of moments , you are given 2 force vectors and two points respectively . And you must find a third point and force to make the 3 moments in equilibrium . So I did the cross product with the first force vector and its point and then with the second vector and its point and added the two resultants leaving me with a vector (4i,0j,-6k) (for the 3 vectors to be in equilibrium,when added up must equal to zero) . So i now no i need a vector and point when the cross product rule is applied will equal (-4i,0j,6k) can i do the cross product backwards if so how ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
