I agree with Bar (see the resulting translation)

Explanation:
What kind of magnitude is the second?

Agree with colleagues...

Explanation:
Se necesita más detalle:
No veo sentido en expresar una magnitud vectorial [gráfica], por otra, sin expresar su procedencia. Si es el análisis gráfico de un experimento, debe representar una curva de reacción o de correlatividad de factores, es mi opinón.

... a vector quantity,... , is therefore described by a magnitude...

Explanation:
de que viene la frase?

impedance is a vector quantity. somewhere in there the author used a word they didn't mean.

The impedance, being a vectorial magnitude, ...

Explanation:
... i.e. composed of a module and a direction, is therefore defined by a magnitude: (equation) and a phase angle, corresponding to the phase difference between the applied sinusoidal potential and the resulting sinusoidal current.

Notes:
1. The text is quite straightforward. It's about basic AC electrical magnitudes.
2. "Voltage" could be used instead of "potential".

Hope this helps.

Ref.: experience.

a vector dimension will appear therefore defined by a magnitude..

Explanation:
All vectors are made up of a linear dimension and an angular dimension. In the case of impedance, the linear dimension would be in ohms, and the angular dimension (phase angle) would be in radians, or sometimes in degrees.

As a result impedance calculations involve the square root of minus 1, which is an immaginary number.
