Hi PF, I have always wondered what was meant when my teachers told me that a vector is the same no matter what coordinate system it is represented in. What is it exactly that is the same? I mean the components change. So the only thing that I can see remains the same is the length of the vector. Unless you understand vector as something more abstract than I do. Please explain :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
