show that if r and F lie in a given plane, the torque = r x F has no component in that plane?
Show that, if r and F lie in a given plane, the torque, t = r x F, has no component in that plane.

The vector product T = r X F is defined to
be in a direction perpendicular to the plane
formed by "r" and "F".
A = 5.1i , -8.4j ,0k
B = 7.4i , 6.3j , 0k
C = A X B = 0i , 0j , 94.29k -->z-axis
No component in the xy plane.
