APPLICATION OF VECTORS
Scalar and Vector Quantities
Difference between Scalar and Vector Quantities
Distinguish between scalar and vector quantities
Addition of Vectors Using Graphical Method
Add vectors using graphical method
Scalar physical quantities have magnitude only. Thus, they can be added, multiplied, divided, or subtracted from each other.
If you add a volume of 40cm3 of water to a volume of 60cm3 of water, then you will get 100cm3 of water.
Vectors can be added, subtracted or multiplied conveniently with the help of a diagram.
