A vector is something which has both magnitude and direction. Examples include velocity which is speed (magnitude) in a givendirection. When written using orthogonal compone…nts vectors are written as acolumn of numbers in parentheses (a one-dimensional array). (MORE)

A vector is a quantity with both a magnitude and a direction, whereas a scalar has only a direction. for a more detailed explanation follow the related link.

A vector is anything that carries a disease. It can be biological, as in the vector (ie: fly, mosquito, etc) creates it naturally or it can be mechanical as in the vector pick…s it up somewhere and transports it to you (ie: a fly lands on feces, then lands on your lunch!!!) Velocity Force (MORE)

In Science

Any value without a direction. Speed, distance and energy (as opposed to velocity, displacement and force) are good examples.

Answered

Force, velocity, acceleration, and displacement are vectors. Mass, temperature, time, cost, and speed are scalars (not vectors).

A unit vector is one which has a magnitude of 1 and is often indicated by putting a hat (or circumflex) on top of the vector symbol, for example: Unit Vector = â, â = 1.The …quantity â is read as "a hat" or "a unit". (MORE)

assuming that 2D Vectors are being discussed here. You first need to have the vectors in polar form, then it is as simple as dividing their magnitudes and subtracting one angl…e from the other. for more detailed information on vector division, you can visit the link at the bottom of this question (MORE)

The same sort of reasoning that zero is a number. It ensures that the set of all vectors is closed under addition and that, in turn, allows the generalization of many operatio…ns on vectors. Also, the way we got around the concept of having something with zero magnitude also have a direction is pretty cool. We made it up! In abstract algebra it's perfectly OK to constrain a specific algebraic structure with rules (called axioms) that the structure must follow. In your example, the algebraic structure that vectors are in is called a "vector space." One of the axioms that define a vector space is: "An element, 0, called the null vector, exists in a vector space, v, such that v + 0 = v for all of the vectors in the vector space." Ta Da!! Aren't we clever? (MORE)

You might define vector by stating that a vector is a quantity with a direction and a magnitute. The vector helps to determine a position in space and is used in mathematics.
