back face removal is done by using the dot product.

first, compute a vector from the viewer position to the position of one vertex of the polygon - it does not matter which vertex is used. then, compute the dot product of this vector and the polygon normal (computed using the cross product).

if the result is positive, the polygon is not facing the viewer and can be discarded.
