Unformatted text preview: this time draw all of the vectors separately (i.e. don’t draw them tiptotail) and draw the x and ycomponents of each vector. Measure the length of the vector components. Since vector ~ F b has uncertainty the components must have a corresponding uncertainty as well. Record the component values in your data table and add up the vector components numerically. Is F 1 x + F 2 x =F bx within the uncertainty δF bx ? Is F 1 y + F 2 y =F by within the uncertainty δF by ? Figure 5.2: Force table setup and corresponding vector diagrams 36...
