**Here describe different types of Vectors:**

**(i) Equal vectors **

Two vectors are said to be equal if they have the same magnitude and same direction, wherever be their initial positions. In Figure the vectors Ǡ and Ḃ have the same magnitude and direction. Therefore Ǡ and Ḃ are equal vectors.

**(ii) Like vectors:** Two vectors are said to be like vectors, if they have same direction but different magnitudes as shown in Figure.

Like vectors Opposite vectors Unlike vectors

**(iii) Opposite vectors:** The vectors of same magnitude but opposite in direction, are called opposite vectors.

**(iv) Unlike vectors:** The vectors of different magnitude acting in opposite directions are called unlike vectors. In Figure the vectors Ǡ and Ḃ are unlike vectors.

**(v) Unit vector:** A vector having unit magnitude is called a unit vector. It is also defined as a vector divided by its own magnitude. A unit vector in the A direction of a vector Ǡ is written as Ǟ and is read as ‘A cap’ or ‘A caret’ or A hat’.
