# How do you find all unit vectors orthogonal to v=i+j+k?

A generalised individual vector is:

##mathbf u = 1/(sqrt( 2 (alpha_2 ^2 + alpha_3 ^2 + alpha_2 alpha_3)))((- alpha_2 - alpha_3),(alpha_2),(alpha_3))##

There are an unbounded calculate of vectors thare are orthogonal to ##mathbf v = ((1),(1),(1))##.

If ##mathbf alpha## is one such vector, we understand from that ##mathbf v * mathbf alpha = 0 implies alpha_1 + alpha_2 + alpha_3 = 0##

A generalised vector is therefore:

##mathbf alpha = ((- alpha_2 - alpha_3),(alpha_2),(alpha_3))##

A generalised individual vector is:

##mathbf u = 1/(sqrt( 2 (alpha_2 ^2 + alpha_3 ^2 + alpha_2 alpha_3)))((- alpha_2 - alpha_3),(alpha_2),(alpha_3))##
