Need help with vectors

  1. May 17, 2008 #1

    I dont have a question on how to solve a specific problem, rather vectors in general.

    In my book, they often give vector direction by stating "due north", "due east", "due west", "due south". However, I cant figure out which of these directions correspond with what degree. For example, is "due north" = 90 degrees?

    Please help.

    I 10 years of using vectors I have always had 90 degress = north.

    so what are the degrees of the other diretions? east, south, west?

    West = 180 Degrees
    South = 270 Degress
    East = 0 Degrees
