COMPONENT ADDITION METHODVectorsCP-02Page 22Rev. 0Component Addition Method Summary+Determine the x- and y- axes of all original vectors.+Mathematically combine all x-axis components.+Mathematically combine all y-axis components.+The results are the components of the resultant vector.Follow the sequence used in the first example. Remember that x at 180 is -x at 0 , and y ato o270 is -y at 90 .ooF = 30 + 50 +(-45) + 15 = 50 lbfxF = 10 + 50 + 30 + (-50) = 40 lbfyF = 50 lbf at 0 , 40 lbf at 90Ro oSummaryThe sequence of steps used in the component addition method of adding vectors is summarizedbelow.
