Let e be the identity element in a relation is an element such that a\ast e= e\ast a= a
Here, a\ast e= \sqrt{a^{2}+e^{2}}
         \therefore \sqrt{a^{2}+e^{2}}= a
Squasing both sides
\Rightarrow a^{2}+e^{2}= a^{2}
\Rightarrow e^{2}= 0
\Rightarrow e= 0
\therefore so,identity element for the given relation is 0
