Six vectors (a through f ) have the magnitudes and directions indicated in the figure. (Figure 1)Rank the vector combinations on the basis of their magnitude. Rank from largest to smallest. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.a+cf+cda+ba+ea+d

Write a vector equation for A for each arrangement of vectors. For example, if adding B and C gives A then write A=B+C. Each answer you give should start with A =.

Add the three vectors below graphically (tail to head) starting with F1 and ending with F3. In your diagram draw in and label the intermediate vector sums F1 + F2 and F2 + F3. What law does this prove?

The sum of the x components of vectors A and B in (Figure 1) is _. Vectors A and B are shown in a tip to tail arrangement. Vector A begins at the origin (0, 0) and ends at the xy coordinate (9, 3). Vector B begins at the tip of vector A and ends at the xy coordinate (4, 6).

Draw the vector D =A +B
