Direction angle of a vector

Direction angle of a vector

It should be clear by now that a quantity will not be considered a vector quantity if the magnitude or the direction is missing. In this section, we will shift our focus to learn how to indicate the direction of a vector.

Lessons

  • 1.
    Determine the direction angle of the following vectors:
    a)
    p= \vec{p}= <6, 1>

    b)
    q= \vec{q}= <-1, 1>

    c)

    Direction angle of a vector

    d)
