Vectors and Scalars
 A 
scalar
is a quantity with magnitude (size) only – for example, an amountof money or a length of time.Sometimes size alone is not enough to describe a quantity – for example,directions to the nearest shop. For this we need to know a magnitude (i.e.how far),
and 
a direction.Quantities with both magnitude and direction are called
 vectors
. A vector is named either by using the points at the end of a directed linesegment (e.g.
 AB

represents the vector starting at point A and ending atpoint B) or by using a bold letter (e.g.
). You will see bold letters used inprinted text, but in handwriting you should just underline the letter (e.g. ).Throughout these notes, we will show vectors bold and underlined (e.g.
u
).

Components
 A vector may be represented by its
components
, which we write in acolumn. For example,
23
is a vector in two dimensions.In this case the first component is 2 and this tells us to move 2 units in the
 x 
-direction. The second component tells us to move 3 units in the
 y 
-direction. So if the vector starts at the origin, it will look like:O
 y 
 x
