Vectors

In this module, we will study scalar and vector math. A solid knowledge of vector math is essential for success in physics at all levels. Vectors behave differently that scalars. For instance, their is no such thing as vector division while there are two different ways to multiply two vectors as well as another way to multiply a vector times a scalar. Vectors also add and subtract differently than scalars. All of these operations have important applications in physics.
