We know that a unit vector is a vector of magnitude one unit.  

  1. Copy the vector diagram. Draw a unit vector with the same initial point and the same direction as the vector of magnitude . Then draw and label components for this vector.

  2. Express the unit vector drawn in part (a) in , form.

  3. Chun was not in class for this problem. Describe a quick way for him to find the components of a unit vector in the same direction as the vector .

    Divide the coefficient of each component by the magnitude of the vector.
