The displacement vectors A and B both have magnitudes of 3.30 m. The direction of vector A is 16.6 degrees. Find the magnitude of |A+B|, |A-B|, |B-A|, and |A-2B| graphically. PLEASE HELP ;/

    each vector has a y and x component

    |dw:1359605406061:dw| these need direction due to vectors .. it says A direction is 16.6 degrees sooooo

    so in order to make sense of each vector you need to break them down into right triangles that show components of x and y i'll start with A|dw:1359605592468:dw|

    now using trig functions you can find the components correct ? can you do that?

    A_x=sin(16.6)*A?

    i got 3.16 as side A_y..

    so now we have \[A_x=Acos(16.6)\] \[A_y=Asin(16.6)\]

    alright so the B is easy since there is only one component to it... which is the \[B_y\]

    B=3.30 but theres no theta?

    yes but it's a simple line on the y axis so it only has one component an x is what i meant =/

    so you have \[B_x=3.30\]

    now you just add the like components to get 2 sides and the magnitude will be the square root of those squared total components

    so B is 3.30 and for A do I add a_x and a_y and A?

    well lets do it like my book says \[R_x=A_x+B_x\] \[R_y=A_y+B_y\]

    i looked at my book you have to face the vectors in certain ways so a-b says to face the vecotrs inward to eachother \
