My calculus textbook says the populations of each of the fifty states is a vector quantity. I know what a vector is but I'm not grasping this particular example. Any help? I would think that maybe it's because the populations may increase or decrease but I thought a vector quantity was associated with a direction in three dimensional space.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
