A vector is given by R = 2 i ^ + j ^ + 3 k ^ . Find (a) the magnitudes of the x, y, and z components; (b) the magnitude of R ; and (c) the angles between R and the x, y, and z axes.

(a)

To determine

The magnitudes of the x , y and z component of the vector R=2i^+j^+3k^ .

Explanation of Solution

The given vector is R=2i^+j^+3k^ .

A vector R in its components form can be written as,

R=Rxi^+Ryj^+Rzk^ (I)

  • Rx is the horizontal component of vector R .
  • Ry is the horizontal component of vector R

(b)

To determine

The magnitudes of vector R=2i^+j^+3k^ .

(c)

To determine

The angles between the vector R and the x , y and z axes.
