Vector A has length 24.9 and is at an angle of 30 degrees. Vector B has length 20 and is at an angle of 210 degrees. To the nearest tenth of a unit, what is the magnitude of A+B?
Not totally defined where the angles are taken from so 2 possible conditions.
Resolved into vertical and horizontal components
Let A be positive
Let B be negative as opposite direction
Magnitude of resultant is
Let to the right be positive
Let to the let be negative
Let up be positive
Let down be negative
Let the resultant be R
With these two values available you should be able to determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant
