Which diagram represents the vector with the largest downward component ? [Assume
each vector has the same magnitude.](1
) (2
) (3
) (4) What is this question really asking? Explanation by: Esy C [ Return to question menu
] Answer 1
CORRECT Because each vector has the same magnitude, fig (1) is most obviously directed downward. return to top
Answer 2
INCORRECT If this vector's magnitude was greater than that of fig (1), it would have a larger downward component. But all of the magnitudes are equal, so it doesn't. return to top
Answer 3
INCORRECT Again, this vector is not the one that points most directly downward. In fact this vector has no downward component. return to top
Answer 4
INCORRECT This is the least likely answer; the vector points upward. return to top
What's this question really asking?
Which vector has the largest downward component? Remember component means part. return to top |
