The Vector Magnitude calculator Vector in three dimensionscomputes the magnitude |V| of a three dimensional vector (V).

INSTRUCTIONS:  Enter the following:

• (V) :  Enter the x, y and z components of V separated by commas (e.g. 2,9,3)

Vector Magnitude |V|: The calculator returns the magnitude of the vector (e.g.9.69)

#### The Math / Science

This formula lets the user enter a three dimensional vector with X, Y and Z components and calculates the magnitude of the vector |V|.   The formula to compute the vector magnitude is:

|V| = sqrt(x²+y²+z²)

where:

Visually, the magnitude of the vector is the length of measurement from the origin of the coordinate system to the end point of the vector.
