Lesson: Scale DiagramsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to use scale diagrams to represent the resultants of combined vector quantities and the components of vectors.
Sample Question Videos
Some vectors are drawn to scale on a square grid. Which color vector shows the resultant of the black vectors and ?
The green vector is the vertical component of the red vector. The blue vector is the horizontal component of the red vector. The red vector is not drawn to scale. What is the angle between the red vector and its horizontal component?
The forces acting on an object are represented by blue and green vectors that are drawn to scale on a square grid. The red vector is the resultant of the green vector and the blue vector and it is not drawn to scale. What is the angle between the blue vector and the vector that represents the resultant force on the object?
