Q.10  Find a vector in the direction of vector5 \hat i - \hat j + 2 \hat k which has magnitude 8 units.

Answers (1)


Given a vector 

\vec a=5 \hat i - \hat j + 2 \hat k

the unit vector in the direction of  5 \hat i - \hat j + 2 \hat k

\vec u=\frac{5\hat i - \hat j + 2 \hat k}{\sqrt{5^2+(-1)^2+2^2}}=\frac{5\hat i}{\sqrt{30}}-\frac{\hat j}{\sqrt{30}}+\frac{2\hat k}{\sqrt{30}}

A vector in direction of 5 \hat i - \hat j + 2 \hat k and whose magnitude is 8 =

8\vec u=\frac{40\hat i}{\sqrt{30}}-\frac{8\hat j}{\sqrt{30}}+\frac{16\hat k}{\sqrt{30}}
