Let’s see the program to compute the cross product of two given vectors using NumPy. For finding the cross product of two given vectors we are using numpy.cross() function of NumPy library.

Syntax: numpy.cross(a, b, axisa=-1, axisb=-1, axisc=-1, axis=None)[

Return: cross product of two (arrays of) vectors.

Let’s see the examples:

Example 1: Cross product of 1d-arrays.

## Python3

 `# import library``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# declare vectors``x ``=` `[``1``, ``2``]``y ``=` `[``3``, ``4``]`` ` `# find cross product of``# two given vectors``result ``=` `np.cross(x, y)`` ` `# show the result``print``(result)`

Output:

```-2
```

Example 2: Cross product of 2d-arrays.

## Python3

 `# import library``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# declare vectors``x ``=` `[[``1``, ``2``], [``3``, ``4``]]``y ``=` `[[``5``, ``6``], [``7``, ``8``]]`` ` `# find cross product of``# two given vectors``result ``=` `np.cross(x, y)`` ` `# show the result``print``(result)`

Output:

```[-4 -4]
```
