c = cross(a, b)

c = cross(a, b, dim)


Computes the cross product of two three-element vectors or matrices.



Name Description
a Specifies a three-element vector or matrix.
b Specifies a three-element vector or matrix.
dim Specifies the order in which LabVIEW computes the cross product for matrices. dim is a scalar that accepts the following values.

1 Performs a column-wise calculation of the cross product.
2 Performs a row-wise calculation of the cross product.
The dim-th dimension of a and b must contain exactly 3 elements.
