Enter the x,y, and z values of two vectors n to the calculator to perform vector subtraction and yield the new vector.

Vector Subtraction Formula

The following equation is used to calculate a new vector from the subtraction of one vector from another.

X3,Y3,Z3 = X1-X2,Y1-Y2,Z1-Z2

Where x,y, and z are the coordinate points of all three vectors with x3,y3, and z3 being the coordinate values of the new vector.

Vector Subtraction Definition

Vector subtraction is the process of subtracting the values of two or more different vectors.

Vector Subtraction Example
