quantities just have an amount, such as mass or speed or time; vector quantities also include a direction, such as displacement, velocity, and force. Vector quantities, such as forces, can still be added if they have different directions using trigonometry. The scalar quantity can be used as the length of the line representing the vector and the direction as the angle of the line. When adding two vectors, draw them as two lines of a triangle; the third line will be the resultant vector, or what you…
