A unit vector is a vector having a magnitude of 1.

You can find a unit vector by dividing the vector by its magnitude. In order to find the unit vector for V we use this procedure.

V / ||V||

There are three unit vectors with special names i, j, and k.
i is in the x direction.
j is in the y direction.
k is in the z direction.
