GRAPHIC METHOD OF VECTOR ADDITION
Figure 20 Graphic Addition - Example 2
Graphic Method Summary
Draw rectangular coordinates.
Draw first vector.
Draw second vector connected to the end (head) of first vector with proper
Draw remaining vectors, starting at the head of the preceding vector.
Draw resultant vector from the origin of axes to head of final vector.
Measure length of resultant.
Measure angle of resultant vector addition.
The steps of the graphic method of vector addition are summarized below.
