Class  PVector 
Name 
mult() 
Examples  PVector v;
void setup() {
noLoop();
v = new PVector(5, 10, 0);
}
void draw() {
ellipse(v.x, v.y, 12, 12);
v.mult(6);
ellipse(v.x, v.y, 24, 24);
}
PVector v1;
void setup() {
noLoop();
v1 = new PVector(5, 10, 0);
}
void draw() {
ellipse(v1.x, v1.y, 12, 12);
PVector v2 = PVector.mult(v1, 6);
ellipse(v2.x, v2.y, 24, 24);
}

Description 
Multiplies a vector by a scalar. The version of the method that uses a float acts directly on the vector upon which it is called (as in the first example above). The versions that receive both a PVector and a float as arguments are static methods, and each returns a new PVector that is the result of the multiplication operation. Both examples above produce the same visual output.

Syntax  .mult(n)
.mult(v, n)
.mult(v, n, target) 
Parameters 
n 
float: the number to multiply with the vector 
v 
PVector: the vector to multiply by the scalar 
target 
PVector: PVector in which to store the result 

Returns  PVector
