# the component of vector is always a)always less than its quantity b)always greater than its magnitude c)always equal to its magnitude d)none of these choose the right answer

The magnitude is determined by math formula that is square root of componentâs square.

The formula for vector magnitude:

• Vector magnitude formula for single vector is | v | = $\displaystyle\sqrt{{{{x}}^{{2}}+{{y}}^{{2}}}}$ .
• Vector magnitude formula with vector points is $\displaystyle\sqrt{{{{\left({x}_{{{2}}}-{x}_{{{1}}}\right)}}^{{2}}+{{\left({y}_{{{2}}}-{y}_{{{1}}}\right)}}^{{2}}}}$
The option would be d
