what is the displacement vector of an object?

the displacement vector is a straight-line connection from the object's initial to his final position, not necessarily his actual path

... of a vector is always a positive quantity

net displacement is the vector

from the initial position to final position

resultant vector

the sum of two vectors is called_

what are the rules of multiplication of vectors by scalar numbers?

Multiplying a vector by a positive scalar gives another vectors of different magnitude but pointing in the same direction

zero vector

a vector of length zero.

How can we perform subtraction between vectors?

With numbers, subtraction is the same as addition of a negative number

Cartesian coordinate system

which type of coordinate system will you use for physics problems?

component vectors

vectors that are parallel to the axis of the Cartesian coordinate system

what means to "descompose or resolve" a vector?

broke a vector into two perpendicular vectors that are parallel to the coordinate axes (component vectors)

component

A part or element of a larger whole.

vector

a displacement distinguished by magnitude and direction but not by location.

displacement

A change in position (delta p).

Scalars

have only a magnitude e.g. speed, distance

length

A measured distance

vector addition

-mathematical operation combining 2 vectors A and B to form a third resultant vector R, the "vector sum" of A and B

no
