Introduction
to Vectors 



How
to put bearings on vectors so it will be easier to add them
up. 

Vect1 
11&12 
Vectors
can be added up graphically using a ruler and protractor. Later
you should learn to do this algebraicly. 

Vect2 
11 
If
you put bearings on the vectors, you need to remove them when
you finish adding them 

Vect3 
11&12 
Vector
Components 



Vectors
sometimes need to be broken into components to add them up or
solve questions. This is how to do this 

Vect4 
11&12 
Another
example of breaking a vector into components but this time you
need to use a sign convention to indicate the direction of each
piece. 

Vect5 
11&12 
Now
that you broke a vector into components, this is how to put
the pieces back together to find the vector.

are needed to solve problems. This is an example of how to use
them.
