Column of a Matrix

A vertical line of elements in a matrix is called column of a matrix.

columns of matrix

The space inside a matrix is split as number of columns to place elements equally in each column. Every two elements in a column is separated by equal space.

Similarly, an equal space between every two columns is maintained in a matrix to avoid mixing elements of every two columns.

Example

$\begin{bmatrix}
1 & 0 & -3 & 2 \\
4 & -7 & 7 & 5\\
-3 & 0 & 2 & -1\\
\end{bmatrix}$

  1. The vertical line of elements $1,$ $4$ and $-3$ is called the first column of matrix.
  2. The vertical line of elements $0,$ $-7$ and $0$ is called the second column of matrix.
  3. The vertical line of elements $-3,$ $7$ and $2$ is called the third column of matrix.
  4. The vertical line of elements $2,$ $5$ and $-1$ is called the fourth column of matrix.
