think about how this could happen. Two forces of 50 and 25 N, resultant force of 25 N...
That's exactly what I need- a diagram. I have no idea.|dw:1367460386063:dw| This is my best guess
the resultant for the two vectors is 25 N. The resultant for any two vectors has to be somewhere between\[\left[ V_1-V_2 \right] and [V_1+V_2]\]
in this case, what is the maximum and minimum sum of these vectors?
I'm doing trig. I haven't learned that yet, I don't think
for this problem you don't need any of that.
Then what do you need? o-o
find the maximum and minimum length of the resultant.
Is the dotted line I drew the resultant? And even if it is, I don't see how it can be more than one value if the shape I drew is a parallelogram.
you are adding two vectors and you don't know the angle between them because that's what you're trying to find.
Could you draw a diagram for me, please?
I'm lost. My teacher never used a circle to solve these types of problems.
I used a circle because you don't know which way the second vector is going relative to the first one.
I give up. What's 50-25?
|dw:1367461942678:dw| Which angle do I need to find?
|dw:1367462096748:dw| resultant is 25
|dw:1367462207710:dw| you are supposed to find that angle
What happened to 38 degrees and 10 minutes?
it doesn't matter. there is only one way to get a resultant force of 25 newtons from forces of 50 N and 25 N.
I will take your word for it.
