A scalar has magnitude and no direction; a vector has both direction and magnitude. Is there a name for a physical or mathematical object with direction but no magnitude?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I guess a description of it could be something like

\lim_{\|v\|\to 0} \vec{v}
