Physics 1101 Experiment 2 Homework NAME_________________________________________________ 1. For the two vectors shown, show how to add them graphically using (i) the parallelogram method and (ii) the polygon method. 2. A resultant vector is 5 units long and makes an angle of 23 degrees measured counter- clockwise with respect to the positive x-axis. What are the magnitude and angle (measured counter-clockwise with respect to the positive x-axis) of the equilibrant vector? 3. Find the x- and y-components of the vector whose magnitude is 8.73 units making an angle of
