# Vector M = 7.3 m points eastward and vector N = 3.0 m points westward. What is the resultant vector M+N?

Nov 6, 2015

Resulting vector is of magnitude 4.3 and is Eastward in direction

#### Explanation:

They are directly apposing.

Let East be positive
Let West be negative
Let the final vector be v

Then we have v = (East) + (-West)

$v = \left(+ 7.3\right) + \left(- 3.0\right) = \left(+ 4.3\right)$
