What is the Difference Between Dot Product and Cross Product?

one of the main differences between the dot product and the cross product is that the dot product is a scalar and the cross product is a vector. the dot product is defined as the product of the magnitude of the vectors and the cos of the angle they subtend with each other.

whereas the cross product is defined as the product of the magnitude of the vector and the sine of the angle between them.
