This applet can be used to demonstrate some of the properties of vector cross
product.

Given two vectors a, b in the same plane, the cross product vector c = a x b is
produced. One can drag the vectors by their tip to change them.

This Applet would be an excellent classroom demo tool (for example in a Calculus
course) for introducing the cross product of vectors.

Works smooth, with good graphics. Limited by the fact that the two vectors are
always shown lying in the same plane.
