Vectors in One and Two Dimensions

How do I visualise vectors in two dimensions?

In this post, we analyse vectors in one and two dimensions to resolve a vector into two perpendicular components and add two perpendicular vector components to obtain a single vector, as a part of the Prelim Physics course under the module Kinematics and sub-part Motion on a Plane.

In this video below, you learn how to visualise vectors in two dimensions, including the addition of vectors to obtain a single vector.
