No. The order of adding vectors does not affect the magnitude or direction. of the result.

The magnitude of two displacement vectors, of magnitude x and y, is sqrt(x2 + y2)

Vectors and Scolars Vectors: have an magnitude and a direction Scolars: have an magnitude but have no direction

are two vectors with the magnitude necessarily equal?

It is impossible if the two vectors are of unequal magnitude.

The magnitude depends on the angle between the vectors. The magnitude could be from 0 to 600 N.

if you add the vectors magnitude and equal to resultant the angle between them is 0

Yes. As an extreme example, if you add two vectors of the same magnitude, which point in the opposite direction, you get a vector of magnitude zero as a result.

Yes, it can.A simple example as when two vectors of the same magnitude act at an angle of 120 degrees to one another.

We can't answer that without also knowing the magnitude of the individual vectors.

Assuming you mean sum and not some, the answer is No.

Yes. Vectors contain both magnitude and direction. Graphically three vectors of equal magnitude added together with a zero sum would be an equilateral triangle.

resultant

It is not possible. The maximum magnitude is obtained when the vectors are aligned and in this case the resultant has a magnitude which is the sum of the individual vectors. In the given example, the maximum possible magnitude for the resultant is 16 units. In general |a+b| <= |a| + |b| where a, b are vectors and |a| is the magnitude of a

yes

Vectors have magnitude and direction. The magnitude is always a positive number.

Scalars are a magnitude by itself. Vectors are magnitude and direction.

Change in magnitude.

vectors

They both have magnitude.

a magnitude and a direction.

Equal vectors are vectors having same direction of action or orientation as well as same magnitude. If two or more vectors have same magnitude but different direction then they cannot be called equal vectors. This shows that direction is important for equal vectors.

If the two vectors point in the same direction, the sum of the magnitudes will be equal to the magnitude of the sum of the vectors.

If both magnitude and direction are the same then the two vectors are said to be equal.

Yes, velocity and acceleration are vectors as they both have a magnitude and a direction.
