**Magnitude of a Vector **

The** magnitude of a vector** is the
length of its directed line segment from the initial point to the terminal
point. So, the magnitude of a vector is a positive number which is the measure
of the line segment representing that vector. The magnitude of a vector is also
known as the **modulus** or **absolute value** of the vector.

**Direction of a Vector**

**Direction** of a vector is the
direction of the line segment representing the vector. The direction of a
vector is measured as the angle made by the vector with positive (i.e
anticlockwise) direction of X-axis.

Therefore, for the
direction of a vector, we find the tangent of the angle (θ) made by the given
vector with the X-axis in a positive (anticlockwise) direction.
