Vector is a quantity which is used to describe parameters with both magnitude and direction. For example, force has both direction and magnitude. Movement can best be described with the help of vector where we can explain the distance of movement as well as the direction in which the body has moved. It is denoted with a small arrow or bar above the letter or symbol chosen.

Suryansh beta,

First you learn about scalar quantity. Till 10th standard we learnt about scalar quantity. Such as distance and speed.

It means scalar quantity has only magnitude we never talk about direction. 

But  vector quantity has both magnitude and direction for example displacement and velocity. 

First We learn about displacement after that you can understand about vector.

In displacement we take a initial point and final point no matter how we reach final point we just see the shortest distance in displacement which is known as magnitude and we make a arrow from initial point to final point which shows its direction. So wee see in displacement  we study both magnitude  and direction. So it is a vector quantity.

But in 10 th class we studied about distance in which we only focus on magnitude  and in distance we not take a shortest path we took all path and add all the distance  to find total distance. So in distance we never take care about direction. So distance  is a scalar quantity.

Vector is A quantity which have magnitude and direction. A quantity which have only magnitude is defined as a scalar quantity. 

Vector= magnitude + direction

To define a direction we have to know about unit vector ( unit vector is a vector which have  unit magnitude  and have particular direction  Forex Axis it is î for y axis it is j^ and for Z axis it is k^

So

Ã=|A|Â

Where Â is unit vector, |A| is magnitude of vector and ã is a vector.

A vector is a property that has both a magnitude and a direction. Vectors are drawn as an arrow with a tail and head. The length of the vector represents its magnitude.

Let's Play Physics for fun

Vector means something is happening in a particular direction, basically it is any physical quantity which has magnitude as well as direction. Like speed of a car is 2okmph, but if you specify the direction in which the car is going, it becomes velocity, which is a vector quantity. hope you understoo...

Vectors are quantities, that have both magnitude and direction and obey vector laws. For example, displacement, force, velocity, acceleration, etc.

Professional physics teacher with 11 years of teaching experience

The physical quantity that posses both magnitude and direction are called vector along with it would follow vector algebra.example velocity is a vetor quantity but speed is a scalar quantity.

You learn when you are comfortable.

Vectors are the quantities which have magnitude as well as direction... Like.. velocity... Acceleration.... When we say a car is accelerating... We will include a numerical value... And its direction of acceleration.
