point. The situation for three-dimensional vectors is very much the same, with an ordered triplet ( a , b , c ) being represented by an arrow from the origin to the corresponding point in three-dimensional space. The vector (a, b) in the Euclidean plane. Unlike scalars, which have only a value for magnitude, vectors are o ! en described as objects that have both magnitude and direction. This can be seen intuitively from the arrow-like representation of a vector in the plane. The magnitude of the vector is simply the length of the arrow (i.e. the distance from the point to the origin), and can be easily computed using the Pythagorean Theorem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
