vector sum

[′vek·tər ‚səm]
(mathematics)
For a set of located vectors in euclidean space,v1,v2, …,vn , this is the vector whose initial point is the initial point ofv1 and whose terminal point is the terminal point ofvn , when the vectors are laid end to end so that the terminal point of one vectorvi is the initial point of the next vectorvi +1. Also known as resultant.
