Presentation Transcript
example 1
Example 1
  • Jim Jimson is riding the DART train. The train is traveling at 4 m/s past the station. As the train passes the station, Jim gets up and walks towards the rear (heh, heh) of the car at 1 m/s. How fast does Jim appear to be moving relative to an observer outside the train?
vectors at right angles to each other
Vectors at right angles to each other?
  • Use R2 = A2 + B2=
  • A and B are…
  • R stands for resultant (the combination of A and B)
example 2
Example 2
  • A car is driven 125 km due west, then 65 km due south. What is the magnitude of it’s displacement?
what the
What the...???
  • Start by drawing a picture!

125 km

65 km

slide14
Since these vectors are at right angles, we can use Pythagorean’s Theorem to solve for this one…
slide15
R2 = 1252 + 652
  • R2 = 19,850 (we don’t want R2, we want R)
  • R = 140.8 km
graphically adding vectors
Graphically adding vectors?
  • Keep these things in mind:
  • Vectors are always added head to tail
  • Add the vectors in the specified order
  • Keep you vectors sized appropriately
