  • Unit vector in the direction of $\overrightarrow a$ is $\hat a=\large\frac{\overrightarrow a}{|\overrightarrow a|}$
Equation of the given plane is $x+2y+3z-6=0$
The vector equation of the given plane is $\overrightarrow r.(\hat i+2 \hat j+3 \hat k)=6$
The normal vector in $\overrightarrow n$
Unit vector in the direction of $\overrightarrow n$ is $\hat n=\large\frac{\overrightarrow n}{|\overrightarrow n|}$
$|\overrightarrow n|=\sqrt {1^2+2^2+3^2}=\sqrt {14}$
Therefore Unit vector in the direction of $\overrightarrow n$ is
$\large \frac{1}{\sqrt {14}}\hat i+\frac{2}{\sqrt {14}}\hat j+\frac{3}{\sqrt {14}}\hat k.$
Hence the statment is $True$
