Problem: Direction Cosines (-2,3,-4) [ Calculator, Method and examples ]

Your problem `->` Direction Cosines (-2,3,-4)

Here `vec A=(-2,3,-4)`

1. Calculate the magnitude(length) of vector `vec A`

`|vec A|`

`=sqrt(A_1^2 + A_2^2 + A_3^2)`

`=sqrt((-2)^2 + 3^2 + (-4)^2)`

`=sqrt(4 + 9 + 16)`



2. Calculate the direction cosines of vector `vec A`

`cos alpha=(A_1)/(|vec A|)=-2/5.3852=-0.3714`

`cos beta=(A_2)/(|vec A|)=3/5.3852=0.5571`

`cos gamma=(A_3)/(|vec A|)=-4/5.3852=-0.7428`
