I'm looking for a word to encompass position, size, and vector in a cartesian plane, their common characteristic being that they're all expressible as a pair of scalar values. This question is somewhat similar. The OP is looking for a word to encompass volume, shape, and size. The question is problematic already, given that volume and size are the same thing. Further, it's over four years old. (And of course, none of the answers really work for my question.)
I poked around here on meta to get some guidance, and I found this answer about rejuvenating old questions. I'm not sure it applies here, as I am not the OP.
Should I edit the old question such that it makes more sense, so it will move back into the active questions, or just ask my question independently and make it clear that I'm not asking the same question?
For reference, here's how I would word it--the first paragraph asks my specific question, while the second broadens it to include the original question, minus the problematic part.
A single word to encompass the concepts of point, size, and vector
I'm looking for a word to encompass position, size, and vector, their common characteristic being that they're all expressible as a pair of scalar values.
I'm writing for a fairly mathematical audience, and it would be great to make them think I'm smarter than I really am, so rather than a pair of scalars in a plane, a word for any generic n-tuple of scalars in an n-dimensional space will do just fine.
