    Slide 1:Vectors

    In A Single Plane

    Slide 2:Vector Representation

    Have you ever drawn a treasure map as a child? Drawn a map to you home for someone else? Vector quantities are represented by arrows that point in the direction of the quantity

    Slide 3:Arrows for Vectors

    The length of the arrow magnitude of quantity ( drawn to scale) The direction of the arrow direction of quantity (reference point) you need a coordinate system or frame of reference (diagram)

    Slide 4:Three ways to indicate direction of vectors Angles 0-360 degrees NSEW [N 30 E] Bearings

    Slide 5:Adding Vectors

    Cant add apples and oranges You can only add vectors that represent the same quantity and are drawn with the same scale (displacements, forces) Resultant sum of all vectors

    Slide 6:Steps for Adding Vectors

    Set up coordinate system Place vector A Place the tail of vector B at the tip of vector A (tip to tail) Repeat step 3 if more than one vector Draw a vector from the tail of the first vector to the tip of the last vector. Label this as you resultant Use a ruler to measure the length of the resultant Use a protractor to measure the angle between the resultant and the horizontal axis Do practice problems page 93

    Slide 7:Subtracting Vectors

    Subtracting Vectors graphically ?d = d2 d1 ?v = v2 v1 A-B same as A + (-B) Negative vectors has the same magnitude and opposite direction

    Slide 8:Steps for Subtracting Vectors

    Set up coordinate system Place vector A Place the tail of negative vector B at the tip of vector A (tip to tail) Draw a vector from the tail of the first vector to the tip of the last vector. Label this as you resultant Use a ruler to measure the length of the resultant (magnitude) Use a protractor to measure the angle between the resultant and the horizontal axis Do practice problems page 98

    Slide 9:Multiplying and Dividing Vectors

    What happens to a vector when it is multiplied or divided by a scalar value? V = ?d / t When displacement (vector) is divided by time (scalar) the resulting vector has a new magnitude and unit but the direction remain the same.

    Slide 10:Relative Velocity

    Analyze quantitatively, the motion of an object is relative to different reference points Eg: stopped at a red light, some times it feels like youre moving backwardsare you? Vector addition is a critical tool in calculating relative velocities

    Slide 11:Pilot ground and air as frames of reference You must account for both the motion of the plane relative to the air and the air relative to the ground Apply velocity vectors for each Plane to air velocity + air to ground velocity plane velocity to ground
