COMPONENTS OF A VECTOR
What are the unit vectors along the negative x–direction, negative y–direction, and negative z– direction?
The unit vectors along the negative directions can be shown as in the following figure.
Then we have:
The unit vector along the negative x direction = -iˆ
The unit vector along the negative y direction = -jˆ.
The unit vector along the negative z direction = -kˆ.
