what is addition of two vector

Asked by  | 18th Jun, 2008, 12:50: PM

Expert Answer:


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
