In adding the east-west components of all the individual vectors one must consider that an eastward component and a westward component would add together as a positive and a negative. Some students prefer to think of this as subtraction as opposed to addition. In actuality it really is addition - the addition of vectors with opposite direction.The vectors we will be adding are displacement vectors but the method is the same with any other type of vectors such as velocity acceleration or force vectors. You need to know about vector components.Adding and Subtracting Vectors To add or subtract two vectors add or subtract the corresponding components. Let u u 1 u 2 and v v 1 v 2 be two vectors. Then the sum of u and v is the vector

Finding the components of vectors for vector addition involves forming a right triangle from each vector and using the standard triangle trigonometry.. The vector sum can be found by combining these components and converting to polar form.Adding the respective components of two vectors yields a vector which is the sum of the two vectors. Key Terms Component A part of a vector. For example horizontal and vertical components.
