Subject: Re: Vector orientation
Hi: Orientation can be thought of as direction - west, 30 degrees. A vector is defined as a quantity represented by a line segment having both magnitude and direction. An example would be, a car's velocity is 35 mph north. While it's speed is just 35 mph. Visit the following web sites for more information. Vectors: Velocities, Accelerations, and Forces http://csep10.phys.utk.edu/astr161/lect/history/velocity.html vector http://www.bartleby.com/65/ve/vector.html Hope this answers your question. -Ron, for the T2T service
