4. Problem 1.2.9, Section 1.2, pg. 26:
Find

±u

and a unit vector in the direction of
±u
when
±u
= [1
,
2
,
3]
.
Solution:
For
±v
we have

±v

=
√
±v
◦
±v,
so for
±v
= [
v
1
, v
2
, v
3
]
,

±v

=
p
v
2
1
+
v
2
1
+
v
2
1
.
so

±u

=
√
±u
◦
±u
=
√
1 + 4 + 9 =
√
14
.
Then the unit vector in the direction of
±u
is
1
√
14
[1
,
2
,
3] = [
1
√
14
,
2
√
14
,
3
√
14
]
.
