Need help on vectors?

Here is a collection of introductory lessons on vectors, equality of vectors, basic operations on vectors,
vector geometry, position vectors, etc., as well as more advanced lessons on vectors and
parametric equations, components of vectors, dot product of vectors, 3-dimensional vectors and more.

We also have a a vector calculator that can help you to find the length of vectors, add vectors, subtract vectors, multiply vectors, calculate cross product and dot product of vectors. Use it to check your answers!

A vector quantity has both magnitude and direction.

Problems involving velocities, displacements, forces and navigation are often made easier when vectors are used.

The topics covered in these introductory lessons on vectors are:

- What is a Vector?
- Vector Magnitude
- Equal Vectors
- Negative Vectors
- Vector Addition
- Vector Subtraction
- Multiplication by a Scalar
- Parallel Vectors
- Vector Geometry
- Position Vector

- Geometric Representation of Vectors
- Algebraic Representation of Vectors
- Components of a Vector
- Adding Vectors Graphically or Head-to-Tail Method
- Adding Vectors using Components I
- Adding Vectors using Components II
- Vector Addition & Scalar Multiplication
- Vector Magnitude & Direction
- The Resultant of Two Forces
