Unit Vector: Background and Definition

In this short post, we will learn how to calculate the magnitude of a vector and how to obtain the unit vector. The magnitude of a Vector A vector has a direction and a magnitude (or length). The following vector has a direction of 1 on the x-axis and 3 on the y-axis.  But

Basic Vector Operations

In this post build a basic understanding of vectors and learn how to perform vector addition, vector subtraction, and vector scaling in a multidimensional space. We also take a brief look at how vectors can be used to construct matrices. What is a vector? A vector is an array of numbers that are arranged
