  # Subtract Vectors Calculator

An online calculator to subtract one vector from another giving the components of the resultant , its magnitude and direction. .

Let u and v be two vectors given in component form by
u = <u1 , u2> and v = <v1 , v2>
The subtraction of vector v from vector u is defined by
u - v = <u1 - v1 , u2 - v2>

## Use of the Subtraction Vectors Calculator

There are two calculators that may be used to subtract one vector from another depending on whether you know the components or the magnitude and directions of the vectors to subtract.
1 - Enter the components u
1, u2 and v1 , v2 of the two vectors u and v respectively as real numbers and press "Subtract the Two Vectors". The outputs are the components of vector u - v, its magnitude and direction in degrees.

 u:     u1 = 2 , u2 = 3 v:     v1 = 10 , v2 = 10 Decimal Places = 3 u - v = < , > Magnitude: ||u - v|| = Direction of u - v: θ = �

2 - Enter the magnitudes (non negative real) and directions of the two vectors u and v respectively as real numbers and press "Subtract the Two Vectors". The outputs are the components of vector u - v, its magnitude and direction in degrees.

 || u || = 2 , Direction of u = 45 || v || = 4 , Direction of v = 135 Decimal Places = 3 u - v = < , > Magnitude: ||u - v|| = Direction of u - v: θ = �
