What is the real life significance of vector products? I understand how vector sums are used and related to real life situations, but not so much for products. The products are said to point perpendicular to the plane of the other 2 vectors. To me this sounds like more of a conceptual math idea that really cant be related to anything in the real world.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Yes, no?
