# Thread: What does it mean to evaluate a vector field on a 2-form?

1. ## What does it mean to evaluate a vector field on a 2-form?

For example, I've read the definition of the interior product a dozen times, Interior product - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , but my understanding is that a 2-form is something that eats two tangent vectors and spits out a number. A vector field on a manifold is a map v(x) = (x,u) for x in M and u in T_xM, so I don't understand how to plug a map into a form.
