what is addition of two vector
Asked by | 18th Jun, 2008, 12:50: PM
Two or more vectors may be added to produce their addition. Note that while adding vectors together we need to take into consideration both their direction and magnitude.
For example: If two vectors each of magnitude 2 and in the same direction are added we get a vector of magnitude 4 in the same direction.
And if two vectors again each of magnitude 2 but in the opposite directions then the resultant is a zero vector.
There are different methods to add vectors some of which are listed below:
1. Polynomial method
2. Parallelogram method
3. Method of components
