# Unit Vector Calculator

The calculator will find the unit vector in the direction of the given vector, with steps shown.

## Your Input

**Find the unit vector in the direction of $$$\mathbf{\vec{u}} = \left(3, 4\right)$$$.**

## Solution

The magnitude of the vector is $$$\mathbf{\left\lvert\vec{u}\right\rvert} = 5$$$ (for steps, see magnitude calculator).

The unit vector is obtained by dividing each coordinate of the given vector by the magnitude.

Thus, the unit vector is $$$\mathbf{\vec{e}} = \left(\frac{3}{5}, \frac{4}{5}\right)$$$ (for steps, see vector scalar multiplication calculator).
