Parallelogram Law of Vector Resolution

According to the parallelogram law of vector addition:

“If two vector quantities are represented by two adjacent sides or a parallelogram then the diagonal of parallelogram will be equal to the resultant of these two vectors.”

Consider two vectors V1  & V2. Let the vectors have the following orientation


parallelogram of these vectors is :


According to parallelogram law:


The process of determining the magnitude of a vector is known as vector resolution.


Magintude or resultant vector can be determined by using either sine law or cosine law.
