Multiplication of a Vector in Physics – Scalars and Vectors
We are giving a detailed and clear sheet on all Physics Notes that are very useful to understand the Basic Physics Concepts.
Multiplication of a Vector:
1. Multiplication of a Vector By a Real Number Definition:
When a vector A is multiplied by a real number n, then its magnitude becomes n times but direction and unit remains unchanged.
2. Multiplication of a Vector By a Scalar Definition:
When a vector A is multiplied by a scalar S, then its magnitude becomes S times and unit is the product of units of A and S but direction remains same as that of vector A.
