Find Vector Equilibrant

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Add 100 N 0 deg and 200 N 90 deg

2. Relevant equations

Resultant results of R= 223.6 63.4 deg

3. The attempt at a solution

I have found the resultant, no idea how to calculate the Equilibrant.

Right now, my computer shows Equilbrant with a red squiggle under it, indicating incorrect spelling. What word were you trying for here?

Did you by chance mean the Cartesian Equivalent? (100, 200) ?

Don't know what a Cartesian Equivalent is, but the correct spelling is Equilibrant.

Basically, getting back to where I started, I quess.

Equilibrant (still get the red squiggles), a vector with the same magnitude as the resultant with opposite direction.

I was able to figure out the process for the Resultant through a convoluted process of using a Vector Adding script then backed into the steps with other data I found on the web.

This actually helped to have the answer since I was able to trial/error the process. Next fun task was building a Excel step by step for my son; now he needs to memorize the formulas.
