General Properties of Vectors
NotationA non-zero vector is has the magnitude of a positive real number and a direction in space.A vector may be represented by two letters describing a line.The order of the lettersindicates the direction and the length of the line its magnitude.An alternative to this notation is to use a single bold letter, for example
C
. Then themagnitude is |
C
| or C.The Unit VectorA unit vector eg
a
, has a magnitude of one |
a
|=1 and can point in any direction.Sometimes a unit vector is written with an accent over it
â
.Different unit vectors point in different directions.Hence, if
F
is an ordinary vector,a unit vector in the direction of
