Vector Addition and Subtraction Resultant: C = A + B . The resultant (net) displacement vector is directed from the initial position P1 to the final position P3. Displacement vector depends only on initial and final positions. – If S1 = P1 and S5 = P3, then E = C

Vector Properties A + B = B + A If C = A + B , then C A + B A + (- A ) = 0 If A is a given vector, 2 A is a vector of the same direction and a magnitude three two as large. -2 A is a vector of the opposite direction, and again, a magnitude two times as large.
