Lecture 2: "Arrow" Arithmetic

Video Description: Herb Gross reviews the definition of vectors — objects that have magnitude, direction, and sense. He also defines equality of vectors, their components, and rules of arithmetic. Vector arithmetic shares many structural properties with scalar arithmetic including a zero and additive inverse. This video also covers the multiplication of a vector times a scalar.

Instructor/speaker: Prof. Herbert Gross
