Physics Chapter 6A Vector Addition: Graphical Method

2
Vectors Vectors indicate magnitude and direction Vectors can be represented by arrow- tipped line segment –Length of line indicate magnitude –Arrow points in direction of vector Sum of any two vectors can be found graphically –Generally, add the vectors tip to tail –Sum is called the resultant

cosθ = a/h a = h cosθ therefore a = h cosθ h = 3km a = 3 cos20 ° a = 2.82km sinθ = o/h o = h sinθ therefore o = h sinθ o = 3 sin20° o = 1.03km

13
Forces Forces are vectors –Because acceleration has direction! Concurrent forces act on an object at the same time Force in one direction does not affect the force in another
