The resultant decreases from 0 degrees until the angle is 180 degrees and then increases until 360 degrees.

### How resultant of two vectors become same if you change there orders?

That follows directly from the addition of vectors by components - here you are adding real numbers, so the commutative law applies.

### Can you add three unit vectors to get a unit vector does your answer change if two unit vectors are along the coordinate axes?

Yes., and their being along the coordinate axes does not change the answer.Consider the vectors: i, -i and j where i is the unit vector along the x axis and j along the y axis. The resultant of the three is j.

### How do you change the magnitude of the resultant vector between two if the angle between them decreases?

If the angle decreases, the magnitude of the resultant vector increases.

### What is the effect on the resultant of increasing the angle between the two forces?

The direction will change; the magnitude of the resultant force will be less.

### What is th effect on the resultant of increasing the angle between the two forces?

The direction will change; the magnitude of the resultant force will be less.

### What is a vectors change in size?

Change in magnitude.

Acceleration

### What control causes a change in volocity?

A resultant force causes a change in velocity.

### Does force change velocities of bodies?

Newton's second Law states that when a resultant force acts on an object with constant mass, the object will accelerate and move in the direction of the resultant force. The product of the mass and the acceleration of the object is equal to the resultant force. The direction of the acceleration has the same direction as the resultant force. If the force stated in this question is always greater than the opposing force (i.e. friction, air resistance...) the body will continue to accelerate and its velocity will increase.

### To increase the force of gravity between two objects how should you change the masses?

Increase the masses.

40% increase.

50% increase.
