dot product and cross product of vector

The dot product is a scalar. The dot product of two vectors gives you the value of the magnitude of one vector multiplied by the magnitude of the projection of the other vector on the first vector.

The cross product is a vector. The magnitude of the cross product of two vectors is the magnitude of one vector multiplied by the magnitude of the projection of the other vector in the direction orthogonal to the first vector.
