I have two questions on vectors:

1) Does the magnitude of a vector vary depending on how one chooses a reference frame?

2) Can a component of a vector be negative?

2. Relevant equations

n/a

3. The attempt at a solution

1) No, because regardless of the reference frame, the magnitude is always the same?

2) Yes, say if the vector points -y or -x or -z
