This means that the y component of the unit vector is: ˆ r y = r y | r | = - 7 × 10 - 10 m 9 . 48683 × 10 - 10 m = - 0 . 737865 007 (part 7 of 7) 3.0 points What is ˆ r z , the z component of the unit vector in the direction of r ? Your answer must be within ± 5.0% Correct answer: 0 . 527046. Explanation: The unit vector has the form: ˆ r = r | r | . This means that the z component of the unit vector is: ˆ r z = r z | r | = 5 × 10 - 10 m 9 . 48683 × 10 - 10 m = 0 . 527046 008 (part 1 of 5) 10.0 points A planet is located at P = - 4 × 10 10 , 8 × 10 10 , - 5 × 10 10 . A star is located at S = 7 × 10 10 , - 6 × 10 10 , 5 × 10 10 . What is R , the vector pointing from the star to the planet? 1. R = 9 × 10 10 , - 1 . 4 × 10 11 , 6 × 10 10 2. R = 8 × 10 10 , - 1 . 6 × 10 11 , 6 × 10 10 3. R = 1 . 1 × 10 11 , - 1 . 4 × 10 11 , 1 × 10 11 correct 4. R = 6 × 10 10 , - 1 . 1 × 10 11 , 9 × 10 10 5. R = 9 × 10 10 , - 1 . 6 × 10 11 , 1 × 10 11 Explanation: This is a vector subtraction problem. To find R , we subtract S - P by respective com- ponents: S x - P x = 7 × 10 10 - ( - 4 × 10 10 ) = 1 . 1 × 10 11 S y - P y = - 6 × 10 10 + 8 × 10 10 = - 1 . 4 × 10 11 S z - P z = 5 × 10 10 + ( - 5 × 10 10 ) = 1 × 10 11 So R = S - P =

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
