The parallelogram method to calculate resultant vector. This method involves properties of parallelograms but in the end boils down to a simple formula. In the picture on the left the black vector is the resultant of the two red vectors.Description Parallelogram Law of Addition (Two Vectors) Draw the vectors in pictorial form. Place the vectors such that their tails coincide. Complete a parallelogram by drawing lines parallel to each of the vectors.If two vectors acting simultaneously at a point can be represented both in magnitude and direction by the adjacent sides of a parallelogram drawn from a point then the resultant vector is represented both in magnitude and direction by the diagonal of the parallelogram pvectoring through that point.

Two methods of vector resolution have been described here - a graphical method (parallelogram method) and a trigonometric method. More Practice Use the Components of a Vector widget below to resolve a vector into its components.Parallelogram Method Draw the vectors so that their initial points coincide. Then draw lines to form a complete parallelogram. The diagonal from the initial point to the opposite vertex of the parallelogram is the resultant. Vector Addition Place both vectors u and v at the same initial point. Complete the parallelogram. The resultant vector u v is the diagonal of the parallelogram.The Parallelogram law is just a furthermore explanation of Triangular law If two vectors are considered to be the adjacent sides of a Parallelogram then the resultant of two vectors is given by the vector which is a diagonal pvectoring through the point of contact of two vectors.
