# Kinematics - RMC Science

Kinematics The Component Method Recall Vectors are quantities that have both magnitude and direction. Graphically, their sum is calculated by adding the vectors tip-to-tail. Graphical method is efficient for co-linear vectors and vectors problems with two vectors only. What if there are more? The component method! The Component Method Method that resolves each vector into its xcomponents and y-components.

The resultant is calculated through the addition of these components. Example #1 Determine the resultant of the following vectors using the component method: * a 10m[W 25 N ] * b 15m[ E 30 S ] Solution Vector a: X-component ay ax b:

a cos 25 x a * a x 10 cos 25 10m 250 300 bx by 15m * r * bx 15 cos 30 rx 10 cos 25 15 cos 30 * rx 3.93m | r | 3.27 2 3.93 2 * | r |
