Unformatted text preview: If we are given a vector a , the unit vector a , is a vector of length one unit in the same direction as a . To change the length of the vector to one, divide the original vector by its length. a a a = Ex . Given j i q 2 5-= , find its unit vector. You could also write it in column representation: Ex .
