Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if a,b are two vectors and angle between them is x then the magnitude's square is a^2+b^2+2ab cos x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or if you're just given one vector let's say {a,b,c} then to find the magnitude of the vector then magnitude = \[\sqrt{(a^2 + b^2 +c^2)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is possible only when the vectors are mutually perpendicular

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember we were finding maginture of like 3 and it was 3 then the magintude of a is a a=sqrt(a^2) what about we went from (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) it was sqrt{(x1x2)^2+(y1y2)^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for any inclined angle between them u have to add a cos x term. when the angle is 90 then the cos term vanishes nd u get a result like sqrt(a^2+b^2)
