# Find a unit vector that has the same direction as the given vector.23. ⟨6, −2⟩

To determine

To find: The Unit vector with same direction.

Explanation

Given:

Vector 6,2 .

Formula:

Write the expression for magnitude of vector a=a1,a2 (|a|) .

|a|=a12+a22 (1)

Write the expression for unit vector with same direction (u) .

u=1|a|a (2)

Substitute 6 for a1 and –2 for a2 in equation (1),

|a|=62+(2)2=36+4=40=210
