Unit Vector = a vector with a magnitude of 1
Given vector $\vec{v}$, the unit vector in the direction of vector $\vec{v}$ is obtained as follows:
$\hat{u}=\frac{\vec{v}}{\vec{v}}$
where $\hat{u}=1$

a)
find $\vec{v}+\vec{w}$

b)
find the unit vector of the resultant vector


a)
find $\vec{v}\vec{w}$

b)
find the unit vector of the resultant vector
