Magnitude of = 2√3
Also, given that
Vector is equally inclined to the three axes.
This means, direction cosines of the unit vector will be same. The direction cosines are (l, m, n).
⇒ l = m = n
The direction cosines of a vector are simply the cosines of the angles between the vector and the three coordinate axes.
We know the relationship between direction cosines is,
l2 + m2 + n2 = 1
⇒ l2 + l2 + l2 = 1 [∵ l = m = n]
⇒ 3.l2 = 1
Also, we know that is represented in terms of direction cosines as,
We are familiar with the formula,
To find ,
Substituting values of and .
Thus, the value of is .
