Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to provide a tangible, hands-on experience  with methods of vector addition. Procedure:  In part one; the direction and magnitude of the forces was given, we  had to determine what masses should be placed on the ends of the line at 37  degrees, 180 degrees, and 270 degrees in order for equilibrium to be reached. In  part two we were given the magnitude of the forces at 270 and180 degrees, the  goal was to find at what magnitude and degree the third force should be at. We  then calculated the masses required to make the three forces equal. In part three  we were given the direction and magnitude of two forces, A and B, and we was  asked to determine vector “R”. We also had to calculate the masses of the forces  to once again put them in a state of equilibrium. Findings: For part one the mass of the X vector had a mass of 114.08 g and the
