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?

Did you get started and got stuck?

My peer solved the problem and got a resultant of 22.8 cm while I got ~17 cm.

I missed the day of the lab so I'm presuming that I did something wrong.

when adding vector you add x component to x component and y with y
anonymous

So do you know how to find component of the vector

?

Would the component of the vectors with 10cm and 15 cm be [\tan^{-1} (15/10)\]

20 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

On it right now. :)

Okay. Got it.

good

most of the time(NOT ALL THE TIME) x is cos() and y is sin()
anonymous
  • anonymous
Cool. For the some totals, I got 12 for x and 18.2 for y.

Okay so my answer is 21.8 which is 1 cm off from my peer.

Yet, when I draw it with a protractor and measure the resultant it comes out a bit odd.
anonymous
  • anonymous
math is more accurate than measuring
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol It should seem so.

Thank you for your help. I'll figure the rest out.
