How is the magnitude of a vector determined?

The magnitude of a vector is equivalent to the length of a vector. Placing a pair of vertical lines (similar to the absolute value symbol) around a vector implies the magnitude of the vector. For example, if the variable V is used to represent a vector, then the expression Image indicates the magnitude of the vector.
