What must be true for two vectors to add up to ZERO? Choose all that apply.
1)Their y-components must be equal.
2)They must be anti-parallel (point in opposite directions).
3) Their x-components must be equal.
4)They must be parallel (point in the same direction).
5) They must have equal magnitudes.
6) They must have opposite magnitudes

    What is wrong with 1 and 3?
    What is wrong with 6 ?

  4. Henry

    All of the following apply: 1 ,2 , 3 ,
    5 , 6.

  5. Damon

    No Henry, for example in #1 the components must be opposite, not equal.
