Unit Vector

  1. Oct 15, 2008 #1
    Ok, so a vector is direction and magnitude, and by finding the unit vector we divide the vector by the length of that vector, |v|

    does that mean we get the direction of the vector?

    The direction is the same as that of vector [tex]\vec{v}[/tex] under consideration.
