8 To add vectors graphically they must be placed “tip to tail.” The result ( F 1 + F 2 ) points from the tail of the first vector to the tip of the second vector. F 1 F 2 R

9 Adding vectors So far we added -1/ Parallel vectors : the direction of the sum was parallel to the two vectors, the magnitude was obtained by placing the vectors tip to tail and adding the magnitudes -2/ Vectors which were perpendicular : the direction of the Sum was obtained by putting the vectors a
