Problem 2: A certain corner of the room is
selected as origin of the rectangular coordinate system. If an insect is
sitting on an adjacent wall at a point whose coordinates are (2, 1, 0) in units
of meter, what is the distance of the insect from this corner of the room?

Solution

Given      Coordinates of the position= (2, 1, 0)

Required

Modulus
of the Position vector.

Let
‘R’ be the position vector of the insect. Since its coordinates are (2, 1, 0),
therefore,

This
equation represents the distance of the insect from the corner of the wall.
