5
Words Math What is 30 m/s north minus 15 m/s east?

6
Mathematically A – B = ? Words Math

7
What is 30 m/s north minus 15 m/s east? Mathematically A – B = ? Words Math The Problem: We only know how to add vectors.

8
The Trick: Make it Addition A – B = A + (– B)

9
The Trick: Make it Addition A – B = A + (– B) Guess: what is – B?

10
Time Out! C This is C

11
Time Out! C Point in the direction of – C!

12
Time Out! C Point in the direction of – C!

13
Time Out! C Point in the direction of – C! - C

14

15
The Trick: Make it Addition A – B = A + (– B) - B is B in the opposite direction

16
The Trick: Make it Addition A – B = A + (– B) - B is B in the opposite direction

Graphical Addition of Vectors 1.Make a scale drawing. 2.Move the vectors tip- to-tail. 3.Draw the resultant vector (free tail to free tip). 4.Measure the length of the resultant with a ruler. 5.Measure the direction of the resultant with a protractor. A + (– B) 1 cm = 5 m/s
