It is a vector that points from the tip of C to the tip of A We can determine its magnitude and direction by adding the components of A and C : # cos ° # cos ° # # sin ° # sin ° # 3 \$ \$ # \$ # \$ # \$ # \$ The magnitude of the vector then is: % A \$% The direction is determined by the angle between the vector and the x axis: #\$ tan ° #\$ P13.

Therefore: # \$ # & \$ # % & & \$ # & \$ # & \$% tan ° Notice that the angle turns out to be the same as (b). The x and y components, however, are negative meaning that the vector lies in III quadrant, while the vector in (b) has all positive components and lies in I quadrant. Therefore, the actual angle measured from the positive direction of the x axis is: ° ° ° 5 P: 19, 21, 31, 33, 37*, 39* Example 3-8 : Level horizontal range (a) Derive a formula for the horizontal range R of a projectile in terms of its initial velocity ! and angle .
