Displacement vectors of 3m and 5m in the same direction combine to make a displacement vector that is 2m?? How?? Why isn’t it 8m?

  • There’s a mistake.

    Displacement vectors of 3m and 5m in the same direction combine to make a displacement vector that is 8m.

    Displacement vectors of 3m and 5m in opposite directions combine to make a displacement vector that is (magnitude) 2m.

  • It’s

    V2 – V1
