A good answer might be:

Yes, -(v × u) = -v × u ?

Colinear Operands

The length of u × v is |u| |v| sin θ. If u and v are colinear (parallel) what is the length of their cross product?

Since sin θ   =   0 when θ   =   0 , and the angle between colinear vectors is zero, the magnitude of the result is zero. The result is still a vector; it is the zero vector  0.

u × u   =   0.

Also, since ku is colinear to u (for a scalar k), then:

(ku) × u   =   0.


Is the result of u × u perpendicular to both operands?
