Hi, I am not fully understanding how to express velocity as a vector equation. In an example my professor gave in class, a particle moves (in a straight line) from point A to point B (starting from t=0) and traveling at 6 m/s. The solution included a unit vector. Does that mean all vector equations describing velocity must include a unit vector?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The solution was (initial point)+[<vector>/unit vector](speed)
