Griffiths 1.7 Find the separation vector $\mathbf{r}$ from the source point (2,8,7) to the field point (4,6,8). Determine its magnitude $r$, and construct the unit vector $\hat{\mathbf{r}}$

$$\mathbf{r}=\text{field point - source point}=(4,6,8)-(2,8,7)=(2,-2,1)=2\hat{x}-2\hat{y}+1\hat{z}$$

$$r=\sqrt{2^2+(-2)^2+1^2}=\sqrt{9}=3$$

$$\hat{\mathbf{r}}=\frac{\mathbf{r}}{r}=\frac{2}{3}\hat{x}-\frac{2}{3}\hat{y}+\frac{1}{3}\hat{z}$$

Surround your text in `*italics*`

or `**bold**`

, to write a math equation use, for example, `$x^2+2x+1=0$`

or `$$\beta^2-1=0$$`
