Make a sketch(/drawing/comic strip/etc) about Vector, it must somehow explains to the reader the following:
  • What is a vector
  • How to add vectors (graphically and/or using components)
  • Optional: Calculation involving significant figures (you will get extra mark if you do this part)
Submission: 14th June 2011
Format: Must be within 1 page of A4 paper.

For fun: Watch the Video on who is Vector:

Vector: Both direction and magnitude
