I'm having problems with question 12b of the attached past exam paper, because I have no idea what the notation ^ means in vector calculus. If someone could explain that to me, I'd be really grateful. :-)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Hi Lucy Yeats!

$\wedge$ is a synonym for the cross product for vectors $\times$.
