Misc 17 Let and be two unit vectors and is the angle between them. Then + is a unit vector if (A) = 4 (B) = 3 (C) = 2 (D) = 2 3 Given & are unit vectors, So, = 1 & = 1 We need to find if + is a unit vector Therefore, + =1 + = 1 2 + . + = 1 . + + . + = 1 . + . + . + . = 1 + . + . + =1 12 + . + . + 12 = 1 2 + . + . = 1 2 + . + . = 1 2 + 2 . = 1 2 . = 1 2 . = 1 2 cos = 1 2 1 1 cos = 1 2 cos = So = 2 3 Hence, option (B) is correct
