difference between mom_contact_normal and mom_contact_vector

What's the difference between mom_contact_normal and mom_contact_vector?

 

I tought i would need to use mom_contact_normal, but the values were off. Using the review tool, i saw the values i expected were correct using mom_contact_vector variable. 

 

But i couldn't find any documentation on what mom_contact_vector exactly is, and i feel quite uncomfortable using it, not knowing exactly what it is.

I couldn't find anything either. Maybe GTAC can ask development for you. When you find out let us know here. My guess is Normal has to do with a surface, and Vector has to do with the tool/tool tip? I am just speculating though based on verbage used in other areas of NX.
