`W = `

The **Vector Subtraction** (**V - U**) calculator computes *Vector subtraction* the vector (W) that is the difference of two vectors in three dimensional space.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**V**): Enter the x, y and z components of vector V separated by commas (e.g. 3,8,6) - (
**U**): Enter the x, y and z components of vector U separated by commas (e.g. 3,8,6)

**Vector Subtraction (W): **The calculator returns the vector (W) which is the difference between vectors V and U.
