How to Transform Vector to Matrix in R (Example Code)

In this article, I’ll illustrate how to switch from vector to matrix class in the R programming language.

Example Data

my_vector <- LETTERS[1:10]        # Constructing example vector in R
my_vector                         # Showing example vector in RStudio console
#  [1] "A" "B" "C" "D" "E" "F" "G" "H" "I" "J"

Example: Transform Vector to Matrix Object

my_matrix <- matrix(my_vector,    # Converting vector to matrix
                    nrow = 2)
my_matrix                         # Showing matrix in RStudio console
#      [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [,5]
# [1,] "A"  "C"  "E"  "G"  "I" 
# [2,] "B"  "D"  "F"  "H"  "J"
