The sum & difference of two non-zero vectors Ä & B are equal in magnitude.what can you conclude about these vectors?why?

• Physics -

Sum A+B
difference=A-B

maginitude sum=ABcosTheta
magnitude difference=ABcos(PI-Theta)

setting them equal, then cosTheta=cos(PI-Theta)

costheta=sinThetasinPI-cosThetaCosPI
cosTheta=sinTheta+cosTheta
which makes sense only if theta is zero or PI. The vectors A,B are colinear

• PHYSICS -

PERPENDICULAR

• Physics -

A& B are perpendicular to each other
