The magnitude and the resultant vector

  • #1
Hi everyone,

Could someone please tell me if the magnitude is the same thing as the resultant vector? I know how to solve for the magnitude, but isn't it the same thing as the resultant vector A+B?

Thank you very much

Yes, it is the same thing.

Magnitude is defined as a scalar value having physical units.

so for example, if a car's velocity is 12m/s [east]

then 12 would be its magnitude.
