## Multiplication and Division of a Vector

by a Scalar
Product of vector A and scalar a = aA
Magnitude =
Law of multiplication applies
e.g. A/a = ( 1/a ) A, a0

aA
Addition of two vectors A and B gives a resultant
vector R by the parallelogram law
Result R can be found by triangle construction
Communicative e.g. R = A + B = B + A
Special case: Vectors A and B are collinear (both
have the same line of action)
Vector Subtraction
e.g. R = A B = A + ( - B )

In 3D problems, direction of F is specified by 2
points, through which its line of action lies
F can be formulated as a Cartesian vector

F = F u = F (r/r)

Note that F has units of forces (N)
unlike r, with units of length (m)
Force F acting along the chain can be
presented as a Cartesian vector by
- Establish x, y, z axes
- Form a position vector r along length of
chain
Unit vector, u = r/r that defines the direction
of both the chain and the force
We get F = Fu
