Single number Examples: mass, volume, length Vector: More than one characteris$c or aKribute. Magnitude (Size) Direc$on (Angle) Point of Applica$on (Loca$on) Sense (Tension/compression) Examples: Force, posi$on, velocity, accelera$on 2 Force as Vector Magnitude = Size Direc$on = Angle P of A = Loca$on Sense = T or C Line of Ac$on Head = Sense Sense: Push or Pull ? Tail = Point of Applica$on Length = Magnitude Direc$on Angle Tension or Compression ?

Each component of the vector is shown as a magnitude and a direc$on. The direc$ons are based on the x and y axes. We use the "unit vectors" i and j to designate the x and y axes. 14 The x and y axes are always perpendicular to each other. Together, they can be directed at any inclina$on. ! ! ! F = FX i + FY j !
