I found the answer for the first part of the problem to be 10 units. But I have no clue how to deal with the second part :) Please give some hints how to solve this following prob.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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

Two vector A and B, are drawn on an x-y coordinate system as shown. Vector A has a magnitude of 8 units, and vector B has a magnitude of 6 units. Find the x- and the y- components of vector A and B in the x-y system. Compute the magnitude of the resultant in the x-y coordinate system. A second coordinate system, the x'-y' system , is rotated 37 degree with respect to the x-y system as shown. Find the x'- and y'- components of A and B in the x'-y' system. Compute the magnitude of the resultant vector in the x'-y' coordinate system.

2. Relevant equations
