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

Two vectors A and B have magnitude of A = 3.02 B=3.00. Their vector product is AXB = -4.90k + 2.01i. What is the angle between vector A and vector B?

2. Relevant equations

since I know the vector product of A and B, I was thinking that Cx = 2.01 and Cz = -4.90. I would then add them together to get -2.89. Then could i use the equation C = ABsin(theta). That would be like

-2.89 = (3.02)(3.00)sin(theta)

-.319=sin(theta)

-18.6 = theta

I don't know if this is the right path to follow but this is what I could come up with.

3. The attempt at a solution

THANKS for any help.
