(i). We need to find the unit vector in the direction of .
First, let us calculate .
As we have,
Multiply it by 6 on both sides.
We can easily multiply vector by a scalar by multiplying similar components, that is, vector’s magnitude by the scalar’s magnitude.
We know that, a unit vector in a normed vector space is a vector (often a spatial vector) of length 1.
To find a unit vector with the same direction as a given vector, we divide by the magnitude of the vector.
For finding unit vector, we have the formula:
Now we know the value of , so just substitute the value in the above equation.
Let us simplify.
Thus, unit vector in the direction of is .
