# The Vector

Vectors are understood as lines or agents that move something from one place to another.

It is a term used in physics and **is represented by a straight line** from one specific point to another and in a **specific direction** .

There is a diversity of vectors: parallel, fixed, opposite, sliding, free or collinear, among many others.

You can perform a **variety of operations** or obtain different data with the vectors, such as an **ordered derivative** .

Most vectors are represented by letters that indicate their origin, destination, and direction.

This term is used in **geometry** and is always represented by an **arrow in a straight line.**

## Vector characteristics

- There are various applications of vectors in nature, such as
**force, weight, and the electromagnetic field.** - Any vector must start from a point to reach the objective that is programmed.
- There are vectors that allow the
**modification of the point of origin**and that do not change the result and other vectors that do not allow it, because doing so changes the result. - Direction is expressed by means of an
**arrow pointing to a certain direction**. - There are
**physical quantities and vector quantities**. - The physical magnitude is represented in
**mathematical texts printed in bold type**. - Every vector graphic has a clear
**number scale**. - The vector modulus is called the
**amplitude and the length**of the segment that details the vector. - The
**direction**refers to the**direction of the vector**. - The
**vectors bound or fixed**, to recognize this type of vector is important to know its address, its modulus, its point of application and meaning.
