Vectors allow you to represent quantities with both size and direction, such as the velocity of an airplane. Better yet, they do so in a mathematically-useful way. Dive in to see how!

Which of the following is a vector quantity?

- the velocity of a moving fluid
- the mass of an apple
- the length of a pencil
- the weight of an atom
- the distance between home and school
