Find the unit vector in the direction of the vector
We know that unit vector means that the magnitude of the vector is 1(unit).
It is defined as
So, we find the magnitude of first.
Compute the magnitude of the following vectors:
Write two different vectors having same magnitude.
Write two different vectors having same direction.
Find the values of x and y so that the vectors are equal.
Find the scalar and vector components of the vector with initial point (2, 1) and terminal point (– 5, 7).
Find the sum of the vectors
Find the unit vector in the direction of vector where P and Q are the points (1, 2, 3) and (4, 5, 6), respectively.
For given vectors, find the unit vector in the direction of the vector
Find a vector in the direction of vector which has magnitude 8 units.
Show that the vectors are collinear.
Find the direction cosines of the vector
Find the direction cosines of the vector joining the points A(1, 2, –3) and B(–1, –2, 1), directed from A to B.
Show that the vector is equally inclined to the axes OX, OY and OZ.
Find the position vector of a point R which divides the line joining two points P and Q whose position vectors are respectively, in the ratio 2 : 1
(i) internally (ii) externally
Find the position vector of the mid point of the vector joining the points P(2, 3, 4) and Q(4, 1, –2).
Show that the points A, B and C with position vectors, respectively form the vertices of a right angled triangle.
In triangle ABC (Fig 10.18), which of the following is not true:
are two collinear vectors, then which of the following are incorrect:
(c) the respective components of are not proportional
(d) both the vectors have same direction, but different magnitudes.
