# Vaquerano Online Graphical Vector Addition

```Graphical​ Vector Addition Remember that ​vectors ​have both ​magnitude and ​direction​. To add 2 or more vectors graphically, you can simply create a “chain” of arrows. The tail (back) of the 2​nd arrow connects with the tip (front) of the 1​st​. The tail of the 3​rd arrow connects with the tip of the 2​nd​, and so on. The sum of the forces is the arrow you’d draw from the tail of the 1​st arrow to the tip of the last arrow. ​Since 2 + 3 = 3 + 2 = 5, the order doesn’t matter! In here, NE, NW, SW &amp; SE all designate angles exactly between the 2 directions. NE = 45​&ordm;
NW = 135​&ordm;
SW = 225​&ordm;
SE = 315​&ordm;
Any other angle should be measured with respect to the n
​ earest cardinal direction​. See the figure to the right. Goto: ​https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/vector-addition 1. Make a ​Copy​ of the document in your drive. a. Include your last name in the title of the new document, such as ​McElroy Vectors 2. For each problem, add the vectors using the tip to tail method. 3. Once complete, a. take a screenshot (Ctrl + Window Switcher) b. paste it into your document (Ctrl + V). ​You can resize it so it’s not gigantic! c. type your final answer in green font. i. Final answers should have no angles greater than 45&ordm; listed! d. Submit your work in the classroom. Problems: 1. 30​u​ W + 30​u​ E= 0u
