A unit radial vector ( hat{r} ) makes angles of ( alpha=30^{circ} ) relative to the ( mathrm{x} ) -axis, ( beta=60^{circ} ) relative to the y-axis, and ( gamma=90^{circ} ) relative to the z-axis. The vector ( hat{r} ) can be written as:
(1) ( frac{1}{2} hat{i}+frac{sqrt{3}}{2} hat{j} )
(2) ( frac{sqrt{3}}{2} hat{i}+frac{1}{2} hat{j} )
(3) ( frac{sqrt{2}}{3} hat{mathrm{i}}+frac{1}{sqrt{3}} )
(4) None of these
