A vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Displacement, velocity, acceleration, and force are vectors.

In situations in which vectors are directed at angles to the customary coordinate axes, a useful mathematical trick will be employed to transform the vector into two parts with each part being directed along the coordinate axes. For example, a vector that is directed northwest can be thought of as having two parts - a northward part and a westward part.
