For each of the vector systems above, write the resultant vector in both Cartesian (X-Y) format and polar form. 3. For each of the following equations, solve for all the variables: (i) 2 3 2 5 = + x x (ii) 3 4 5 = + y x and y x 5 11 = + (iii) 1 = + + z y x and 4 3 5 2 = z y x and 2 3 = + z y 4. Five lightweight plastic spheres labeled A through E are suspended from threads as shown. Each sphere holds either positive charge +Q, negative charge –Q, or zero charge. When each sphere is moved closed to another, the following behavior is noticed: Sphere A attracts ALL the other spheres. Sphere B attracts spheres A, C, and D only, and has no effect on sphere E. A positive charge repels sphere C.
