Physics problem: A vector with 20 degrees is scaled to 10cm and is added to a vector with 80 degrees scaled to 15cm. When graphing them with a protractor, then adding them to find the resultant, what would the approx. equilibrant resultant be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My peer solved the problem and got a resultant of 22.8 cm while I got ~17 cm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when adding vector you add x component to x component and y with y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do you know how to find component of the vector

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would the component of the vectors with 10cm and 15 cm be [\tan^{1} (15/10)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.020 degree 10 cm assuming 20 degree from positive x direction... x component 10 cos(20) y component 10 sin(20) Now do that to second vector then add them togther

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0most of the time(NOT ALL THE TIME) x is cos() and y is sin()

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cool. For the some totals, I got 12 for x and 18.2 for y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so my answer is 21.8 which is 1 cm off from my peer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yet, when I draw it with a protractor and measure the resultant it comes out a bit odd.
