Vectors are added by placing the tail of one vector on the
head of the preceding vector; the sum of the vectors is
obtained by joining the first tail to the last head.
The analytical method of adding vectors makes use of the
laws of cosines and sines.
A vector is completely specified by giving its magnitude or
direction, or by giving its components in a coordinate
Vectors may be added by adding the respective
Two vectors are equal if their respective components are
The dot product of two vectors is a scalar; it is equal to
the product of the magnitudes of the vectors and cosine the
angle between them.
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
