Addition and Subtraction of Vectors – Triangle Method
The method of adding vectors graphically is by arranging them so that head of first is touching the tail of second vector and making a triangle by joining the open sides. This method is called head-to-tail method or triangle method of vector addition
Addition of Vectors – Parallelogram Method
The method of adding vectors by parallelogram method is by:
- Touching the tail of the two vectors
- Complete a parallelogram by drawing lines from the heads of the two vectors.
- Vector resulting from the origin to the point of intersection of above lines gives the addition.
