To push an equally heavy object with a very smooth surface across the table at the same speed will require less force. If a layer of oil or other lubricant i ...

You can think of this vector as the resultant of a horizontal vector with a magnitude of 3 units and a vertical vector with magnitude of 5 units. Since vectors with the same magnitude and direction are equal, many vecto ...
