How do engineers and physicists represent 2-D and 3-D vectors?

Best answer

Engineers and physicists represent vectors in two dimensions (also called 2-space) or in three dimensions (also called 3-space) by arrows.

The direction of the arrowhead specifies the direction of the vector and the length of the arrow specifies the magnitude. Mathematicians call these geometric vectors. The tail of the arrow is called the initial point of the vector and the tip the terminal point.
