How would you add all the vectors together at once? just using the dx method? so
dx=25cos30E+30cos40W+35cos65E
and dy=25sin20N+30sin40N+35sin65S
But then how would you use the c2=a2+b2?
D1 & D2
dx=25cos30 = 21.65 w+22.98 E = 1.33 E dy=26sin30+30sin40= 12.5 N+19.28 N = 31.78 N
c^2=a^2+b^2 C=31.8 m
tan= 1.33/31.78 =2.41 therefore, 31.8 m [N 2.4 E]
D1 & D3
dx=25cos60W+35cos65W =27.3 W Dy=25sin60N+35sin65[s]=10.07 S
C2=27.32+10.072= 29.1 m
Tan= 27.3/10.07 =69.75...
