Projecting distance for Unit Vector

  1. Sep 6, 2009 #1
    I am calculating Unit vector for non orthogonal Cartesian grid. To calculate Unit Vector I need to project eg. y and x distance of east face of cell on i and j axis resp. I am using following formula-
    Unit vector= Ue
    Surface area= Se=sqrt(dx2+dy2)


    Can anybody please tell me how I can calculate projection?

    How are you defining the inner product?
