When drawing a vector using the triangle method of addition how do you draw in the resultant vector?
When drawing a vector using the triangle method you will draw in the resultant vector using Pythagorean theorem. This is taught in physics. ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Physics
Is it true that all physical quantity which has a direction and a magnitude is a vector?
I think so, yes; that's basically what the concept of a "vector" in physics is all about. (There are also more abstract vectors in math and physics, but something that has a magnitude and a direction would be enough to quality as a vector.) ...

What are the applications of vector algebra and vector calclus?
Vector Algebra and Vector Calculus are used widely in science, especially Physics and engineering. The physical world involves four dimensions, one scalar dimension and three vector dimensions. From this you can say that 3/4 of the world involve vectors. ...
Asked in Physics
What are the major concepts of a scalar and vector quantity in physics?
That vectors are just scalars WITH a direction. (for example 50 miles is a scalar distance, but 50 miles north is a vector) ...
