This is more a concept question than an actual homework problem but why is it more or less meaningless to define differential k-forms on R(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{n}in this case of k > n?

I'm not really sure why this is so, but I might guess that since twodxs are the same in the product of such terms, then that whole term equals 0. If that's the case, is a k-form with k > n just the same as a k-form with k=n?_{i}
