No, a vector cannot have zero magnitude if one of its components is not zero.
Consider a vector\overrightarrow{b} = b_{x}\widehat{i}+b_{y}\widehat{j}+b_{z}\widehat{k} such that its magnitude is:
\left | \overrightarrow{b} \right | = \sqrt{b_{x}^{2}+b_{y}^{2}+b_{z}^{2}}
It can be seen from this equation that if any ofb_{x}, b_{y} orb_{z} is non-zero, the magnitude of vector\overrightarrow{b} will also be non-zero.

No, a vector cannot have zero magnitude if one of its components is not zero. The Brainliest Answer! The magnitude of a vector is computed as the sum of squares of its elements. ... However, if those elements are complex numbers, for example, then it is possible that the vector has zero magn
