An object is moving with constant speed in a straight line relative to the origin. The objects initial and final position vectors are respectively: u = i + 2j + 3k v = 2i + j -4k Find an expression for q, the position vector of the object when it has travelled a distance of x.

    i hope it is q=u +(x/sqrt(51) (v-u) (sqrt(51) for converting the drs of uv to dcs)
