  1. Feb 6, 2009 #1
    Just a quick question
    is there a difference if the vectors are lined up horizonatally or vertically?
    eg:

    (b)
    (c)

    or (d,e,f)

    Re: vetors

    If you just treat them as vectors, then it doesn't really matter.
    However, when you are going to do things like matrix multiplication, there is a big difference between row and column vectors.
