PhysicsLAB Practice Problems
Adding Parallel, Anti-parallel, and Orthogonal Vectors

Directions: On this worksheet you will practice adding vectors that are either parallel or antiparallel as well as those that are at right angles to each other.

Question 1  Two vectors are added together: (7,0º) and (11, 180º). The magnitude of their resultant is
Question 2  What is the direction of the resultant in Question #1
Question 3  Two vectors are added together: (4, 0º) and (20, 270º). The magnitude of their resultant is
Question 4  The direction of the vector in Question #3 is
Question 5  Two vectors are added together: (20, 90º) and (11, 180º). The magnitude of their resultant is
Question 6  The direction of the vector in Question #5 is
