How can I calculate the magnitude of vectors?
The magnitude of a vector can be calculated by the following steps:-
Represent the vectors on a cartesian plane. Let the vectors be
Now draw a vector triangle by drawing the horizontal and the vertical components of the two vectors which would result in the formation of a right angle triangle.
Now using the Pythagorean theorem find the unknown quantity.
Magnitude if simplly the modulus of the two given vectors.
i.e. root over(a^2+b^2)
