Physics 621A (Online) Lesson 2 – Section 10.1 (Part 1)
Section 10.1: Vector Components Review: Equations of Motion (pg. 455) can be rearranged as : These equations are introduced in Ch. 2 and Section 3.1 (review if necessary)
In Ch. 3 we learned… 2 vectors can be combined to give a Resultant Vector We can represent the Resultant Vector graphically by lining the vectors up “tip-to-tail” and drawing a vector that begins at the beginning of the first and ending at the end of the second: ´ ? ´ ? 1 ´ ? 2
Also in Ch. 3… We mathematically calculated the vector addition of perpendicular vectors using the Pythagorean Theorem ´ ? ´ ? 1 ´ ? 2 ?
Now, in Ch. 10: We will add all vectors (perpendicular and non-perpendicular ) All vectors can be broken down into components (x and y) This means the vector itself is the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the components are the adjacent and opposite sides) ´ ? 1 ´ ? 2 ? 1 ´ ? 1 ? ´ ? 1 ? ´ ? 2 ? ´ ? 2 ? ? 2
To determine resultant vector… Add up the x-components to determine Add up the y-components to determine ´ ?

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
