In class today we had a brief lesson on vector addition. I understand how to calculate the resultant when given a magnitude and angle measurent for each vector, but my teacher gave me no other examples. I have tons of homework problems that do not give me this information, but I am expected to solve. Can you please give me a brief overview of how to solve a vector addition problem without having angle measurements.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
