Vector in a sentence as a noun

And then remake the rest of pac-man's sprites in vector!

Comic Sans is just a vector for that, but if you find fault with it, its still the people who are at fault.

When you "move" through space, you're not changing the magnitude of your velocity vector, only its direction.

It's a patent for a specific set of steps to execute vector code in loops in parallel, which means the HN title is needlessly linkbaity.

Note that using ultrasound as a communication mechanism, which is what's being described here, is very different from using it as an infection vector.

You've got VR headsets for immersive 3d audio and video, haptic gloves or suits, sometimes with cabling for precise pressure and force vector feedback, variable-attitude simulators, etc.

Once you have an entry vector you essentially have an exploit, the rest is developing that exploit to do something "useful".Sorry for the shortness of this response, if people are interested I can throw together a couple of blog posts.

The goal should be to enact a vector of a new paradigm, as proactive team players synergize an out-of-the-box strategy of functionality and infotainment, re-engineering the learning curve framework of your dotted-line relationship.

Because you see, if the inertially moving object were to come to a stop instantaneously, the acceleration vector would continue to point toward its future position for a time, as if it were still moving inertially, even though the object is actually somewhere else.

Since the ball motion, physics, and coordinates were all in floating point, and the ball is constantly being pushed "down" the sloped table by the gravity vector in every frame, we found that floating point error would gradually accumulate until the ball's position was suddenly on the other side of the barrier!

In fact and I'm glossing over this now, because the maths are damn complicated whenever a gravitating object moves inertially, the gravitational acceleration vector at a point removed actually points at where the object actually is at a given instant, as opposed to where the object's light is seen to be coming from at that instant.

Vector definitions


a variable quantity that can be resolved into components


a straight line segment whose length is magnitude and whose orientation in space is direction


any agent (person or animal or microorganism) that carries and transmits a disease; "mosquitos are vectors of malaria and yellow fever"; "fleas are vectors of the plague"; "aphids are transmitters of plant diseases"; "when medical scientists talk about vectors they are usually talking about insects"

See also: transmitter


(genetics) a virus or other agent that is used to deliver DNA to a cell
