What is the 'Tip to Tail' method?
When you move the tail of the 1st force to the tip of the 2nd force, keeping the angles to same
5 of 8
What is the 'Parallelogram Method'?
When you draw a parallelogram with the 1st and 2nd force as sides. You would then draw a diagonal across the parallelogram, this being the resultant force
