## Important Topic of NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Chapter 10 – Vector Algebra

The chapter Vector Algebra belongs to the unit Vectors and Three-Dimensional Geometry, which adds up to 14 marks of the total marks. There are 4 exercises, along with a miscellaneous exercise in this chapter, to help students understand the concepts related to Vectors and Vector Algebra clearly. Some of the topics discussed in the tenth Chapter of NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths are as follows:

1. The scalar components of a vector are its direction ratios and represent its projections along the respective axes.
2. The magnitude (r), direction ratios (a, b, c) and direction cosines (l, m, n) of any vector are related as l=(a/r), m=(b/r) n=(c/r)
3. The vector sum of the three sides of a triangle taken in order is 0.
4. The vector sum of two coinitial vectors is given by the diagonal of the parallelogram whose adjacent sides are the given vectors.
5. The multiplication of a given vector by a scalar λ changes the magnitude of the vector by the multiple |λ| and keeps the direction the same (or makes it opposite) accordingly, as the value of λ is positive (or negative).

The other concepts and topics explained in the NCERT Solutions of this chapter can be understood by going through Chapter 10 of the NCERT textbook for Class 12.
