**What is Vector?**

Vectors can be defined as a geometric entity that has both a magnitude and direction. A vector is basically an arrow with two components: a magnitude (size) and a direction. Vector can be used to describe the displacement of any body or object such as velocity, acceleration, momentum, etc.

**Types of vectors: **

**The 6 main types of vectors are:**

1. Unit Vector

2. Equal Vector

3. Like Vector

4. Free Vector

5. Sliding Vector

6. Bound Vector

1.

**Unit Vector:**A vector whose magnitude is unity is known as unit vector.

2. **Equal Vectors:** The vectors which are parallel to each other having same direction and

equal magnitude are known as equal vectors.

3. **Like Vectors:** The vectors which are parallel to each other having same direction and

unequal magnitude are known as like vectors.

4. **Free Vectors:** The vectors having definite magnitude and direction but no specific location

are known as free vectors.

5. **Sliding Vector:** A vector which can be moved along the direction of vector itself is known

as sliding vector.

6. **Bound Vector: **A vector which has a specified point of application is known as a bound

vector.
