Vector Subtraction Calculator

Vector Subtraction Calculator (or Subtraction of Vectors Calculator) is an online tool which is used in subtraction of two vectors. If two vectors are given, then it can easily subtract one vector from other.

For using the Vector Subtraction Calculator for two vectors 'u' and 'v' where vector 'v' has to be subtracted from vector 'u' to calculate 'u - v', and vector 'u' = ai + bj + ck & vector 'v' = di + ej + fk, put the values of 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f' and on clicking solve it will calculate the vector equivalent to 'u - v'.

Step 1 :  

Subtract second vector "v" from first vector "u"

If  u = ai + bj + ck

And v = di + ej + fk

Then, subtraction of u and v => u - v = (a-d)i + (b-e)j + (c-f)k

  1. Subtract the vectors :(3i + 4j + 5k) from (6i + 8j + 7k)?

    Step 1 :  

    Subtract (6i + 8j + 7k) from (3i + 4j + 5k)

    So, (6i + 8j + 7k)-(3i + 4j + 5k)= (6-3)i + (8-4)j + (7-5)k = 3i + 4j + 2k

    Answer  :  

    3i + 4j + 2k
