5 Which of the following is an accurate statement?

The magnitude of a vector can be zero even though one of its components is not zero.

The magnitude of a vector is independent of the coordinate system used.

It is possible to add a scalar quantity to a vector.

Rotating a vector about an axis passing through the tip of the vector does not change the vector.

Even though two vectors have unequal magnitudes, it is possible that their vector sum is zero.
