Coordinate Systems & different types of Coordinate Systems

To specify the location of a point in space, a coordinate system must be used. A coordinate system consists of a reference point called the origin O and a set of labeled axes. The positive direction of an axis is in the direction of increasing numbers, whereas the negative direction is the opposite. different types […]

Conditions of Perpendicular and Parallel Vectors

Conditions of Perpendicular and Parallel Vectors are as follows: Nonzero vectors A and B are perpendicular if A · B = 0 or Ax Bx +Ay By+Az Bz = 0 Nonzero vectors A and B are parallel if A×B = 0. For any two parallel vectors A and B, if we have A = qB, […]

The force vectors on an aeroplane in steady flight & numerical

In this post, we will study a probable set of force vectors on an aeroplane in steady flight. The forces acting on an aeroplane (airplane) are shown in Figure 1. force vectors on an aeroplane in steady flight Let’s list down the force components acting on the airplane when it’s having a steady flight. The […]

How to calculate the resultant of two vectors easily?

In this post, we will discuss how to calculate the resultant of two vectors easily. The resultant of two vectors can be done in different methods like (1) Using the Triangle Law, (2) Using the Law of Parallelogram, and (3) using Rectangular Components & Pythagoras Theorem. Among these three methods, the third one is quite […]

Numerical problem sets on Vector Physics (Class 11 & 12)

This post presents Numerical problems on Vector Physics. These 2 worksheets will help students who are preparing for Class 11 Physics in different boards like IGCSE, GCSE, ISC, CBSE, etc. Also covers the syllabus of many international boards for HSC grade 11 & 12. This is equally helpful for those students who are focusing on […]

How to resolve vectors easily?

If we take a single vector we can find a pair of vectors at right angles to each other that would combine to give the single original vector. This reverse process is called resolution or resolving vectors. The pair of vectors are called the resolved vectors. The resolved pair of vectors will both start at […]

Scalar product formula with an example

Scalar multiplication of two vectors yields a scalar product. Scalar multiplication is also known as the dot product. In the next section, we will see how the scalar product formula or equation is written. Scalar product formula | equation of dot product The scalar product of 2 vectors A and B is expressed by the […]

Relative Velocity – explanation with Vector concepts

Relative velocity: The velocity of an object measured by a moving observer is referred to as the relative velocity. The relative velocity is the difference between the velocity of the object relative to the ground and the velocity of the observer relative to the ground. It helps us to understand the motion of an object […]

Vector Subtraction

As we have discussed Vector in physics and had a detailed study of Vector addition, now its turn to discuss another topic of vector physics which is Vector Subtraction. Vector Subtraction helps us to subtract one vector from another vector. Now how do it? To subtract one vector from another, for example, to get A […]

What is Vector Physics?

Vector physics is one of the most fundamental chapters in high school physics where we learn about Vector and Scalar quantities. To understand it we have to proceed step by step starting with physical quantity. The quantity which can be measured is called physical quantity. The physical quantities measured in physics can be divided into […]
