How to calculate the Magnitude of a Vector
Solving Example Questions about finding the Magnitude of a Vector
Hopefully you have studied the previous maths video about calculating the magnitude of a vector and are you familiar with the special notation/symbol. Now it is time for you to look at the following two example maths activities in which I will ask questions which will further develop your understanding of this important IGCSE GCSE maths topic. Good luck!
How to solve a Past Paper Question about Vectors combined with Simultaneous Equations
Example maths questions how to calculate the Magnitude of a Vector
Once you have studied all the maths activities and example questions above, it is time for you to try to answer some questions yourself. Have a look at the FREE maths worksheet I have created for you and try to calculate the magnitude of each vector. You can also download the worksheet for FREE below. On the second page you will find the answer key so you will be able to check all your answers. I encourage you for each question to make a quick sketch of the situation before you start calculating the magnitude. You should also always try to make a sketch on your GCSE IGCSE maths exam for you are bound to make less mistakes and get a higher grade if you do. If you still don't understand how to calculate the magnitude of a vector, then please send me a message and I will help you with your maths by making a few more videos for you. Good luck!
