Graphical Representation An arrow, or arrow-tipped line segment that symbolizes a vector quantity with a specified length and direction.
Algebraic Representation Representation of a vector with an italicized letter in boldface type, which is often used in printed materials.
Resultant Vector The sum of two or more vectors.
Vector Resolution The process of breaking a vector into its components.
Component Scalar projections of the component vectors, with positive or negative signs, indicating their directions.
What are components and component vectors and where do they come from? Components are the magnitude and sign of a component vector. The sum of the vectors are called a component. They come from the resolving of an original vector.
How is vector addition used in real life? GPS systems
Vector addition, ordinary addition, and multiplication are all _________. Commutative
How is the resultant displacement affected when two displacement vectors are added in a different order? The resultant displacement vector is the same, regardless of the order of addition.
Explain the method you would use to subtract two vectors graphically. Change the direction of the second vector and add them.
