In Physics a vector is a number with a direction.

a vector having unit magnitude and have a certain direction.

A position vector tells us the position of an object with reference to the origin

resultant vector a vector in which 1 side shiner and another side is polish is called resultant vector

T. N. Lockyer has written: 'Vector particle physics' -- subject(s): Mathematical models, Particles (Nuclear physics), Vector analysis

When drawing a vector using the triangle method you will draw in the resultant vector using Pythagorean theorem. This is taught in physics.

I think so, yes; that's basically what the concept of a "vector" in physics is all about. (There are also more abstract vectors in math and physics, but something that has a magnitude and a direction would be enough to quality as a vector.)

linear vector

False

Speed is scalar (that is, without direction) and velocity is a vector (speed plus direction) by definition in physics.

That's a vector whose direction is exactly opposite to the direction that you designated as the positive one when the exercise or analysis began.

In physics:If you talk about speed, that refers to a scalar quantity.If you talk about velocity, that refers to a vector quantity.

I had this question in my physics class as well and the answer is vector :)

The rate of displacement with respect to time is called velocity.It is vector quantity.

As used in physics, the two are different. Speed is a scalar, velocity a vector.

vector is important because it shows direction as well as magnitude

There are two types of quantities in Physics: the vector quantity and the scalar quantity.

Vector Algebra and Vector Calculus are used widely in science, especially Physics and engineering.The physical world involves four dimensions, one scalar dimension and three vector dimensions. From this you can say that 3/4 of the world involve vectors.

The Resultant force in Physics is the vector solution (sum) of multiple individual forces acting on a common point in space and time.

Total force refers to the vector sum of several individual forces.

It could represent a vector.

Drag is a force vector, usually caused by air resistance, fluid resistance, or friction, that causes acceleration in a direction opposite to an object's velocity vector.

That vectors are just scalars WITH a direction. (for example 50 miles is a scalar distance, but 50 miles north is a vector)

The sum of all forces is equal to zero when added using the vector method The sum of all torque is equal to zero when added using the vector method
