Addition and Subtraction of vector : Addition of Vectors — Graphical Methods For vectors in one dimension, simple addition and subtraction are all that is needed. You do need to be careful about the signs, as the figure indicates. Addition and Subtraction of vector
PowerPoint Presentation: If the motion is in two dimensions, the situation is somewhat more complicated. Here, the actual travel paths are at right angles to one another; we can find the displacement by using the Pythagorean Theorem.
PowerPoint Presentation: Adding the vectors in the opposite order gives the same result:
PowerPoint Presentation: Even if the vectors are not at right angles, they can be added graphically by using the tail-to-tip method.
PowerPoint Presentation: The parallelogram method may also be used; here again the vectors must be tail-to-tip.

PowerPoint Presentation: Subtraction of Vectors In order to subtract vectors, we define the negative of a vector , which has the same magnitude but points in the opposite direction . Then we add the negative vector.
