Question

# Write a vector of magnitude $$9$$ units in the direction of vector $$-2 \hat {i} + \hat {j} + 2 \hat {k}$$

Solution

## Let $$\overrightarrow {a} = -2 \overrightarrow {i} + \overrightarrow {j} + 2 \overrightarrow {k}$$Required vector $$\frac { \overrightarrow {a} }{ | \overrightarrow {a} | } \times 9$$$$= \frac { 9( -2 \overrightarrow {i} + \overrightarrow {j} + 2 \overrightarrow {k}) }{ \sqrt { 4 + 1+4 } } = \frac { 9 ( -2 \overrightarrow {i} +\overrightarrow {j}+ 2 \overrightarrow {k} )}{3}$$$$=-6 \overrightarrow {i} + 3 \overrightarrow {j} + 6 \overrightarrow {k}$$Physics
