Problem Solving

1. Using the graphical method of adding vectors, find the resultant displacement of the following :
D1 = 150 m, 0ᴼ
D2 = 450 m, 90ᴼ
D3 = 550 m, -180ᴼ
Scale : 100 m = 1 cm
2. Using analytical method of addng vectors, find the resultant force of the following F1 = 3 N and F2 = 4 N if
they are :
(a) The same direction
(b) Opposite direction
(c) 90ᴼ to each other
Plotting of vectors : Draw the following vectors in a Cartesian plane ( rough sketch only )

1) 45 km, 312ᴼ 6) 350 m, E 48ᴼ N

2) 65 inch, NW 7) 25 mm, -35ᴼ

3) 7 km, -250ᴼ 8) 76 m clockwise from (-) y to (--) axis

4) 15 cm, 56ᴼ W of N 9) 22 km/h, -180ᴼ

5) 10 units, 190ᴼ 10) 15 m/s2, SE


A. Using graphical method, find the resultant velocity of the following : 3.0 m/s, 45ᴼ, 5.0 m/s,
135ᴼ and 2.0 m/s, 60ᴼ.

B. Jack and Rose are out fishing on the lake on a hot summer day whwn they both decided to go
for a swim. Rose dives off from the front of the boat with a force of 55 N, while Jack dives
off the back with a force of 75 N. Find the resultant force on the boat.

C. A motorcycle is driven 50 km, West then 30 km, South. Show the vector diagram and find the
total displacement of the motorcycle using analytical method.

D. Which one is more accurate to use in adding vectors, graphical method or analytical method?
