Homework Help: Adding 3 vectors

  1. Sep 21, 2010 #1
    Vector A = 8.10 m and points 25.0o north of east. Vector B = 2.50 m and points 20.0o west of north, and Vector C = 2.90 m and points 35.0o west of south. What is the magnitude of the resultant vector A+B+C?

    This is a pretty basic problem, but you should show some effort. No one wants to just solve homework problems. How much do you know? Do you know how to write the vectors in component form? Do you know how to add vectors?
