Representation of vectors graphically

We already know about vectors and scalars in physics. In this article, we will explore how to represent vectors graphically.  Now we already know vectors have Magnitude and Direction To represent them graphically we must take account of both magnitude and…

How to find average velocity on a position time graph

Average velocity is defined as the displacement divided by the time during with the change in position of the particle takes place. Average velocity is a vector quantity and its SI unit is meter per second \((m/s)\). So,\[v_{avg}=\frac{\Delta \vec{x}}{\Delta t}=\frac{x_2-x_1}{t_2 -t_1}\]Consider…
