Vector Operations is a part of the VCE Specialist Maths topic Vectors, and looks at the addition and subtraction of vectors and their multiplication by scalar and position vectors.
The following video will introduce all the terms relevant to vector operations, and get you started with some easy examples.
Adding and Subtracting Vectors
Adding and subtracting vectors gives us the resultant vector. This is like what happens to an object when two forces are acting upon it, or the final direction of two objects after they collide. Watch this video to learn more!
Multiplication of Vectors
Multiplying a vector occurs by multiplying the components of the vector by the scalar number. This video will explain this concept with examples!
