A vector is a quantity or phenomenon that has two independent properties: magnitude and direction. The term also denotes the mathematical or geometrical representation of such a quantity.

Vector graphics is the use of polygons to represent images in computer graphics. Vector graphics are based on vectors, which lead through locations called control points or nodes.

This note contains the definition of 10 types of vectors.

The magnitude of the vector is a positive number which represents the length of the vector or directed line segment. It is also known as modulus of the vector. Direction of a vector is the value of angle made by the vector with x-axis in positive direction.
