Question details

Activity 1-6: Addition and Subtraction of Vectors by Components If we add two vectors, we can break up the addition by components. For example Since the x-components point in the same (or opposite direction), we can add the values of the components separately to get the overall vector component in that direction. Once we have the overall components, we can get the magnitude of the vector and its direction by using Pythagoreans theorem and trigonometry. In what follows, we will consider two vectors AandB with A = 3.0, θ.-30°,B= 4.0,-115°. For each part, show your work using symbols before using numbers 1. Sketch vectors A and B in the space provided. 2. Determine the components of vectors A, A, and Ay 3. Determine the components of vectors B, B, and B, 4. Determine the components of vector , C, and Cy, given that č-A+B 5. Determine the magnitude of vector Č,c 6. Determine the direction of vector C, C
