Experiment 4: Resolving & Adding Vectors6/25/2019Student Name:REPORTSection Number:Instructions1)Follow all of the lab activity steps given in the Lab Procedure.2)3)4)Attach additional sheets of paper that clearly (NEATLY) show all of your calculations performed during this experiment.Results1)What is the principle source of error in each of the methods used for vector resolution and addition (graphical, analytical, and experimental)? Which of these methods is most accurate? Why?Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. 2)You measured the direction of the analytical resultant relative to the x axis. Would the vector components change if you had used a different reference axis? Would the magnitude of the resultant change? Would its direction change? Explain. Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph.Attach your completeddata tables to this page.TYPE YOUR ANSWERS IN THE PROVIDED SPACES below & in your data tables. The graphical method is a visual of R=A + C. The graphical method is also very limited in precision.This limited precision
