`W = V " onto " U`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Vector Projection** calculator computes the resulting vector (**W**) that is a projection of vector **V** onto vector **U** in three dimensional space.* Vector V projected on vector U*

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**V**): Enter the x, y and z components of**V**separated by commas (e.g. 3,4,2) - (
**U**): Enter the x, y and z components of**U**separated by commas (e.g. 3,4,2)

**Vector Projection:** The calculator returns the projection of V onto U (**W**) in comma separated form.

To compute the projection of vector V onto vector U:

- Compute the magnitude of vector V
- Compute angle between vectors V and U
- Compute the unit vector of vector U
- Compute the scalar (k) associated with the projection which is the magnitude of V times the cosine of the angle between them.
- Compute the vector resulting in the scalar multiplication of the unit vector of U and the scalar (k).
