DIRECTED QUANTITIES

**1. The direction of a vector in a plane is denoted by the angle which the
**

vector makes with positive x-axis in the

[a] anti-clock wise direction [b] clock-wise direction [c] upwards [d]

downwards

2. Rectangular components of a vector are those components which have

the following angle between them is

[a] 0

[b] 30

[c] 45

3. The vectors

⃗a ,

⃗b

, and

⃗c

[d] 90

are related by

⃗c

=

⃗b

− a⃗ . Which

diagram below illustrates this relationship?

**3. Two concurrent forces have a maximum resultant of 45 N and a minimum
**

resultant of 5 N. What is the magnitude of each of these forces?

a. 0 N and 45 N

b. 5 N and 9 N

c. 20 N and 25 N

d. 0 N

and 50 N

ANSWER: The resultant of two vectors varies from arithmetical

difference to its arithmetical sum for an angle of 180o to 0o

respectively. Thus the component vectors should be able to give sum

equal to 45N and difference equal to 5N.

Only c (20 N, 25 N) fulfil this condition, which is the CORRECT

answer.
