If i calculate the vector product of

**a**and

**b**in cartesian coordinates i write it as a determinant with

**i , j , k**in the top row. The 2nd row is the 3 components of

**a**and the 3rd row is the components of

**b.**

Does this work for sphericals or cylindricals eg . can i put

**e**in the top row with the relevant components in the 2nd and 3rd rows ?

_{r}, e_{θ}, e_{φ}I know that for the formula for grad , div and curl in sphericals or cylindricals then scale factors appear but is the cross product of 2 vectors independent of scale factors ?

Thanks
