Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont understand the question, it asks for me to use a graphing utility to graph it and find the resultant , and magnitude / direction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is a free graphing program online that is pretty helpful what does the actual problem say

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the resultant is vector is simliar to an average of the 2 vectorsdw:1362001906941:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know its similar, but I'm more of it being xi+xj, at this point I don't understand

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the ij parts are notations that are rather pointless in my opinion. the just stand for the xy compnent parts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the magnitude can be found using law of cosines, but youll have to add 180 one of the vectors to use it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its 82 and 12 degrees, and the magnitude of the above is 12 and the below is 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the component parts of the individual vectors uses sin and cos of their angles times their length <12cos(82),12sin(82)> and <8cos(36012),8sin(36012)>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it can be i spose. that would be the inverse tangent of the resultant vector components

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1say your vectors are something more readable like: <3,4> and <1,1> the resultant is just the subtraction of one from the other <3,4>  <1,1>  <2,3> the direction is then that tan^1 (3/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, resultant is a+b, not ab :)
