# How do you find the resultant as a sum of two components?

##### 1 Answer

Please read the explanation.

#### Explanation:

How do we use the **components of two vectors** to find the **resultant vector** by adding the two vectors ?

A **Vector** is defined as a **quantity** with both **magnitude** and **direction**.

Two vectors are shown below:

We will also be using these vectors in our example later.

In **component form**

In **component form**

Let us see how we can **add these two vectors**:

Using component form:

Add

We can represent this solution graphically as follows:

The solution is represented by

OR

Note: Alternative graphical solution process:

OR

We can see that
