None of these values are absolute—but how could they be? How could your digital audio program know the absolute loudness you will experience, which depends not only on the audio data, but also the volume setting on your computer, the volume knob on your amplifier, the power supplied by the amplifier to your speakers, the distance you are from the speakers, and so on. Sometimes people describe how loud something is in terms of an absolute dB number. Following in the footsteps of Gabriel Fahrenheit, this scale uses a reference point based on the human body.

0 The zero vector is special because it is the only vector with a magnitude of zero. All other vectors have a positive magnitude. The zero vector is also unique because it is the only vector that does not have a direction. Since the zero vector doesn’t have a direction or length, we don’t draw it as an arrow like we do for other vectors. Instead, we depict the zero vector as a dot. But don’t let this make you think of the zero vector as a “point” because a vector does not define a location.

We are talking about elements in any set. ” But the latter term is not as widely understood, and we could only afford this footnote to dwell on the distinction. 4. 6. 4 Vectors versus Points Recall that a “point” has a location but no real size or thickness. In this chapter, we have learned how a “vector” has magnitude and direction, but no position. So “points” and “vectors” have different purposes, conceptually: a “point” specifies a position, and a “vector” specifies a displacement. 3), showing how 2D vectors are specified.
