  • #1

Homework Statement


vector A = 66.28 degrees north of east, unknown magnitude
vector B = 40.56 degrees north of west, unknown magnitude
vector C = 46.8(magnitude), south

all vectors start form the origin
their magnitudes are given in arbitrary units

find:
a) components of resultant
b) magnitude of resultant
c) angle w/ the x axis of the resultant

2. The attempt at a solution
i want to make sure if this problem doesn't lack any given..
