Add the following vectors using component method:
Vector A=175km; 30 degrees north of east
Vector B=153km; 20 degrees west of north
Vector C=195km; West
a)Find x and y component of each vector
b)Solve for the magnitude of resultant vector
c) Solve for direction(angle)
2. The attempt at a solution
So i these are what i got
Vector A: x=175cos 30....x=151.56 y=175sin 30......y=87.5
Vector B: x=153cos 20....x=-143.77 y=153sin 20.....y=52.33
(are these correct?)
so after getting this i added all the x's and y's but then i realized that the question had said that vector C goes 195km west, so i now got confused what to do next.
please help thank you for your time.
