Dude. How do you Uncross a cross product?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If I have [itex]\vec{v}=\vec{\omega}\times\vec{r}[/itex] how do I solve for omega? How do I "cross divide"?

    Scalar operations are easier, I know. But how do you do this vectorially?
