Play Video
The Triangle Rule Adding Vectors to find a Resultant
This video covers triangles, the triangle rule, Law of Cosines and Sines.
Lecture 2
2D Find Resultant Vectors, Triangle Rule, Cartesian Components
Play Video
2D Find Resultant Vectors, Triangle Rule, Cartesian Components
This will teach you about 2D resultant vectors, the triangle rule, and cartesian components.
Lecture 3
Resolving a 3D Vector into Cartesian Components
Play Video
Resolving a 3D Vector into Cartesian Components
This is a statics lesson to derive angle phi and angle theta z. These equations are used when a vector is given by two angles but needs to be resolved into xyz components.
