### Example Question #1 : Directional Derivatives

Calculate , where in the direction of .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The first thing to check is to see if the direction vector is a unit vector.

In order to see if it is a unit vector, we need to take the magnitude and see if it is equal to .

Now we are going to take partial derivatives in respect to , , and then , and then multiply each partial by the component of the unit vector that corresponds to it.

The formula is:
