Vectors are straight lines that indicate both

__________________ and ____________________

of a quantity.

31. magnitude

32.

Two or more vectors can be added together and

direction

become a single vector, called the RESULTANT

vector. Vectors on the same axis are added

algebraically. For example, if you have two vectors,

+ 3 and + 4, both on the X axis, their sum +7 is the

value of the __________________ vector.

32. resultant

33.

All vectors start from the point of origin. When they are

on the same axis and pointing in the same direction,

the resultant vector equals the ALGEBRAIC sum of the

vectors. The vectors may be illustrated like this:

Two vectors on

Their resultant

the same axis and

vector:

in same direction:

The value of the resultant vector is ________________

on the X axis.
