First we have to find out how long the vector is. Since the vector has magnitude 5 and we want it to have magnitude 1, the vector is 5 times too long. We need to ``divide" the vector <3,4 > by 5, which is the same as multiplying by . Let We claim *v* is a unit vector. Check by finding its magnitude: Yes, *v* is a unit vector. Hmm. The normalization of <3,4 > is This happens to be the same thing as Coincidence? |
