This is a general question about the equation.
So, I know that the cross product requires a vector in at least 3 dimensions crossed with another.
Here is the formula that I am using:
My problem is the negative/positive sign orientation in front of the y element and z element.
I've seen equations for this where there exists only addition between the x,y, and z elements in a cross product. And my teacher tried to explain it to me, and I softly understood, but I want to make sure I know what's going on.
Why does the cross product equation sometimes have all positive signs between elements, but the one that I use (and works) has a negative and then a positive sign?
