Find the magnitude (length) of $$$\mathbf{\vec{u}} = \left\langle -1, 2, 5\right\rangle$$$.


The vector magnitude of a vector is given by the formula $$$\mathbf{\left\lvert\vec{u}\right\rvert} = \sqrt{\sum_{i=1}^{n} \left|{u_{i}}\right|^{2}}$$$.

The sum of squares of the absolute values of the coordinates is $$$\left|{-1}\right|^{2} + \left|{2}\right|^{2} + \left|{5}\right|^{2} = 30$$$.

Therefore, the magnitude of the vector is $$$\mathbf{\left\lvert\vec{u}\right\rvert} = \sqrt{30}$$$.


The magnitude is $$$\sqrt{30}\approx 5.477225575051661$$$A.
