what is the scalar triple product and vector triple product?

## Scalar Triple product

When we multiply three vectors such that their resultant is a scalar quantity then this is called scalar triple product.

The mathematical expression for it is given as

(AXB). C

The scalar triple product represents the volume of a parallelepiped.

## Vector triple product

If the product of three vectors results in a vector quantity, then it is called vector triple product. The mathematical representation is

AX(BXC)=B.(AC)-C.(AB)A. This is also called BAC-CAB rule.
