Physics 102 Lecture 6 Slide 2 Department of Physics, University of Arizona Subtracting vectors A B To subtract a vector, add its negative: C = A - B = A + ( - B ) A - B A C = A B B Components: C x = A x - B x ; C y = A y - B y The result can also be obtained by lining up A and B tail to tail , then drawing C from the second (subtracted) vector to the first:
