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.
