But surely physics more so.

So is a cross product vector just another way of stating the answer to a normal physics question

"What is the angular momentum of such and such given the following conditions?"

And the vector in words would be stated

(whatever the magnitude is) metres squared per second?

ie

Vector C is 38 meters per second squared

AND the answer to the physics question just happens to be pointed in 3D space along the axis of rotation?

So you could almost imagine the vectors or whatever they mean rotation around the cross product vector as if it's really an axis of rotation? Or is it merely symbolic with no correlation to a physical rotation around that vector?

I'm going to understand this Cross product thing in real world terms if it kills me. lol
