Vectors with a magnitude of 1
14.37 Describe the relationship between a vector v and its unit vector .
Given a vector v, the corresponding unit vector has the same direction as v with a magnitude of 1.
Just like a unit circle has a radius of 1, a unit vector has a length of 1.
Note: In Problems 14.38–14.39, v = <4, 3>.
14.38 Given v = <4,3>, express its unit vector in component form.
Begin by calculating the magnitude of v.
