What is plagiarism
Plagiarism is when you copy someone else’s answers. Even if you make slight changes in sy
mbols it is
still plagiarism. Plagiarism is cheating and is wrong. If it is detected all the people whose answers are
extremely similar will get zero marks for the questio
It is a good idea to discuss problems with other people.

You may find the campuses maps at
Your vector map must include: • Starting point and destination for each vector • Each
vector (shown as arrows) on the path • Scale and orientation • Calculated total distance
to each location
(scalar) • Calculated total displacement (vector) with its magnitude and

What is the purpose of adding vector
s both graphically and numerically?
List several scalar quantities. Explain the differences between scalar and vector
Besides adding vectors, we can also subtract vectors by our two graphical techniques.
Explain and demonstrate how

Three family portraits of equal weight (15 Newtons) are hung by wires at different
angles, see pictures below. Explain which wires of which portrait are less likely to break
and why. Give
a full mathematical reasoning behind your explanation. Saying this or
that portrait will not get you any marks.
