**Question 2: Discuss methods of vector representation.**

**ANSWER**

Vector representation means how a vector quantity like force, displacement or momentum is represented on a paper. Vectors are represented by graphic or symbolic methods depending on the situation at hand.

**(1) Graphical representation of vectors**

Graphically, a vector is represented by a line having an arrow head at one end. The arrow head indicates the direction of the vector and the length of the line the magnitude of the vector.

For example, a force of 100 N directed north is represented as

**(2) Symbolic representation**

According to this method, a vector is represented either by a bold face English alphabet or an alphabet with an arrow-head on it.
