Fundamental concepts and sum of vectors

Fundamental concepts of vectors

In this video, about 4 minutes long, the fundamental concepts about vectors and the sum of vectors are reviewed.

Draw a vector

A vector has magnitude and direction. Draw a vector and identify its magnitude and direction.

Components of a vector

A vector can be decomposed into two components perpendicular to each other.

Sum of vectors

Experiment with vector equations and compare vector sums and subtractions. Customize the base vectors or explore scalar multiplication by adjusting the coefficients in the equation. Specify vectors in cartesian or polar coordinates, and view the magnitude, angle, and components of each vector.
