Objectives

After studying the material of this chapter, you should be able to:
1. Represent the magnitude and direction of a vector using a protractor and ruler.
2. Multiply or divide a vector quantity by a scalar quantity.
3. Use the methods of graphical analysis to determine the magnitude and direction of the vector resultant in problems involving vector addition or subtraction of two or more vector quantities. The graphical methods to be used are the parallelogram method and the tip to tail method.
4. Use the trigonometric component method to resolve a vector components in the x and y directions.
5. Use the trigonometric component method to determine the vector resultant in problems involving vector addition or subtraction of two or more vector quantities.
6. Use the kinematics equations of Chapter Two along with the vector component method of Chapter Three to solve problems involving two dimensional motion of projectiles.
