I am trying to solve this cross product; 3 vertices p1=(0,0,3), p2=(4,0,0) & p3=(0,4,3) given, I need to find the normal of the surface bounded by these 3 vertices.
I was told answer is (3,0,4) but my attempts kept leading me to (12,0,16)
here's what I did.
normal = (p1-p2) x (p3-p2) = [(0,0,3)-(4,0,0)]x[(4,0,0)-(0,4,3)] = (-4,0,3)X(4,-4,-3)
normal = (12,0,16)
where did i go wrong?
