geometrya specific location in space, represented by coordinates in a given coordinate system.
A point in geometry is a specific location in space. It has no dimensions, only position. Points are fundamental entities in geometry and are used to define other geometrical shapes, such as lines and planes.
In a given coordinate system, a point is represented by coordinates. In a twodimensional Cartesian coordinate system, a point is represented by an ordered pair of numbers , where is the distance along the axis, and is the distance along the axis. For example, the point is units along the xaxis and units along the axis from the origin.
In threedimensional space, a point is represented by an ordered triple of numbers , specifying its position along the , , and axes.
Points are essential in many areas of mathematics, including algebra, geometry, and calculus, as well as in physics, engineering, computer graphics, and more.
A vector is a mathematical object represented by an ordered list of numbers called components, which define its magnitude and direction in a multidimensional space.
