A zero vector has no direction. 2. A unit vector is a vector with magnitude one (1). Unit vectors have no units. Unit vectors are used primarily to designate direction. 4 Multiplication of Vectors and Scalars If s is a scalar and V is a vector, the product sV (or Vs) is a vector whose magnitude is jsj jVj and whose orientation is the same as that of V. The sense of sV is the same as that of V if s is positive and opposite to V if s is negative. 2. Every vector V may be represented as a product of a scalar s and a unit vector n.
