Introduction to Adding Vectors
Objectives Name the parts of a vector arrow. Correctly represent vectors using vector arrows. Add vectors graphically.
Representing Vectors using Vector Arrows And also naming the parts of a vector arrow
How do we represent a vector? We represent a vector using a VECTOR ARROW.
Why do you think we use an arrow rather than something else?
What is VECTOR QUANTITY? It a quantity that is completely described by a magnitude and direction.
The Vector Arrow Length represents the magnitude of the quantity. Direction of the arrow represents the direction of the vector.
Adding Vectors …with vectors which run along the same axes…
Let us try this. 5 km East + 4 km East
But the 5 km would not fit in the boundary of the paper. Use a SCALE.
Tail to Tip Method 5 km East + 4 km East
5 km East + 4 km East 5 km East 4 km East R = 9 km East
5 km East + 4 km West 5 km East 4 km West R = 1 km East
4 km East + 5 km West 4 km East 5 km West R = 1 km West
You try this. 90.0 km, North + 72.0 km, South
Adding Vectors …with vectors that are along different axes…
How about… 4 m/s, North + 3 m/s, East
4 m/s, North + 3 m/s, East 4 m/s, North 3 m/s, East 5 m/s, ?
4 m/s, North + 3 m/s, East
4 m/s, North 3 m/s, East 5 m/s, 36.9 o
Construct this Vector. 5 m/s, 36.9 o
Construct this Vector. 7.00 m/s, 15.0 o
Naming Vectors Naming them in Three Ways
4 m/s, North + 3 m/s, East
4 m/s, North 3 m/s, East 5 m/s, 36.9 o 36.9 o
The magnitude of this vector is 55 Newtons. Name this vector.
Determine the measures of angles.
Example θ1θ1 θ2θ2 55.0 m, 35.0 o east of north
Exercise Number 1 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 55.0 m, 35.0 o West of North
Exercise Number 2 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 10.0 N, South 65.0 o West
Exercise Number 3 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 50.0 m/s 300.0 o
Name that Vector.
Example θ1θ1 θ2θ2 55.0 m, 35.0 o east of north Use methods 2 and 3.
Exercise Number 4 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 55.0 m, 35.0 o West of North Use methods 2 and 3.
Exercise Number 5 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 10.0 N, South 65.0 o West Use methods 1 and 3.
Exercise Number 6 θ1θ1 θ2θ2 θ3θ3 50.0 m/s 300.0 o Use methods 1 and 2.

Physics VECTORS AND PROJECTILE MOTION
Vectors You will be tested on your ability to: 1.correctly express a vector as a magnitude and a direction 2. break vectors into their components 3.add.
VECTORS VECTOR – ANY QUANTITY THAT IS DEFINED BY A MAGNITUDE (SIZE) AND A DIRECTION.
Do Now Write a few sentences to compare and contrast scalar quantity with vector quantity.
Ch. 3, Kinematics in 2 Dimensions; Vectors. Vectors General discussion. Vector A quantity with magnitude & direction. Scalar A quantity with magnitude.
Unit 3-1: 2-Dimensional Vectors. A vector is any quantity that has both magnitude and direction. A 2-Dimensional vector is drawn at some angle with the.
Chapter 3, Vectors. Outline Two Dimensional Vectors –Magnitude –Direction Vector Operations –Equality of vectors –Vector addition –Scalar product of two.
I know where I’m going. A scalar is a quantity described by just a number, usually with units. It can be positive, negative, or zero. Examples: –Distance.
Vector Quantities Vectors have ▫magnitude ▫direction Physical vector quantities ▫displacement ▫velocity ▫acceleration ▫force.
Honors Physics Vectors and Scalars. Scalar Quantity What does it mean to be a Scalar Quantity? Examples? Units of measure must be included with.
Adding Vectors on the Same Line When two vectors are in the same direction it is easy to add them. Place them head to tail and simply measure the total.
Aim: How can we distinguish between a vector and scalar quantity? Do Now: What is the distance from A to B? Describe how a helicopter would know how to.
3.1 Introduction to Vectors. Vectors indicate direction; scalars do not Examples of scalars: time, speed, volume, temperature Examples of vectors:
Vectors and Scalars Objectives: Distinguish between vector and scalar quantitiesDistinguish between vector and scalar quantities Add vectors graphicallyAdd.
Introduction to Vectors. Overview Definition of a Vector Uses of Vectors Vector Notation Parts of Vectors.
Year 10 Pathway C Mr. D. Patterson. Distinguish between scalar and vector quantities Add and subtract vectors in 2 dimensions using scaled diagrams.
Kinematics & Dynamics in 2 & 3 Dimensions; Vectors First, a review of some Math Topics in Ch. 1. Then, some Physics Topics in Ch. 4!
Vectors. 2 Scalars and Vectors A scalar is a single number that represents a magnitude –E.g. distance, mass, speed, temperature, etc. A vector is a set.
