EXPERIMENT 5. VECTOR ADDITION
Practice
Consider two vectors, vector A has a magnitude of 3 cm and at an angle of 35
0
, while vector
B has a magnitude of 2 cm and points at 150
0
.
1. Use a protractor and ruler to draw each vector, ﬁrst separately, then tiptotail.
2. From your scale drawings, estimate the following values:
