Recently I was told that scalars, although magnitude only, can be negative. Does this mean that the magnitude of a vector can be negative too?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, I'm wondering if there's a difference between the absolute value and magnitude of a vector like -3i-4j. Thanks for any help that you can provide
