## Homework Statement

Use the component method to add the vectors vector A and vector B shown in the figure. The length of vector B is 3.25 m and the angle θ = 28.5°. Express the resultant vector A + vector B in unit-vector notation.

## Homework Equations

x = rcos

y = rsin

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew the components for vector A, and got Ax = 3cos28.5 = 2.64m and Ay = 3sin28.5 = 1.43m ( i don't know if they are correct though). I'm lost at what to do next for vector B cause its a vertical line.

Is it right for me to say that after finding vector B's components, i add the X components to find i unit vector and add the Y components to find the j unit vector? And i just get the answer by putting them in one equation, i + j?
