What Is Vector With Example?
A vector has magnitude and direction. A vector describes the movement of a particle from one point to another. Vectors are usually drawn with a line and arrow. A negative vectors goes in the opposite direction. Vectors can be multiplied by a scalar. Vectors are parallel if one is the scalar multiple of the other. The scalar multiple for the example below is 3.
Vectors have direction. We can add, subtract and multiply vectors. When two vectors are perpendicular the dot product is equal to zero. See the examples below.
How Do Column Vectors Work?
The examples below are known as column vectors. Column vectors have two values, the x direction and y direction. Column vectors are written vertically.
