Vectors

QuestionAnswer
3 methods for adding and subtracting vector values. 1.tip-to-tail 2. Component 3.Vector Notation
Tip-to-Tail Method is? Place tip end of one vector (A) at the tail end of the following vector (B). The resulting vector from tail of 1st vector to tip of 2nd vector will read A+B;
Component method? This method involves breaking each vector into perpendicular components. Given vector (V), draw right triangle with (V) as hypotenuse. Solve for X and Y components through trig functions.
Vector Notation Defining two dimensional vectors by their x and y components Add different x and y components A = 3i + 5j B = 2i + -5j = 5i + 0j
Multiplication (Vector)*(Vector) (Vector)*(Vector) = Scalar Multiply magnitudes and cos of angle between two A*B = |A| |B| cos∅
Multiplication (Vector)*(Vector) (Vector)*(Vector) = vector Multiply magnitudes and sin of angle between two A*B = |A| |B| sin∅
Scalar Examples Distance = d Speed = v Time = t Energy = E Mass = m
Vector Examples Displacement = d Velocity = v acceleration = a Force = F Torque = \tau t
Speed/Velocity Speed denotes to [L]/[T}, Distance traveled/elapsed time. Velocity denotes to same but with the added part of what direction. v= displacement/elapsed time

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
