of the resultant vector analytically A = magnitude of vector A B = magnitude of vector B γ = angle B sin θ = R cos γ Used to determine the angle between the Vector R &A analytically B = magnitude for vector B R = magnitude of vector R γ = angle θ = angle R = R x 2 + R y 2 Used to resolve a resultant vector into the component R x = the x component of resultant vector R y = the y component of resultant vector R x = R cos θ R y = R sin θ Used to determine the x and y component in the resultant vector R = magnitude θ = angle tan θ = R y R x Used to determine the angle R x = the x component of resultant vector R y = the y component of resultant vector R x = A x + B x + C x R x = A y + B y + C y Used to determine the x and y component in the resultant vector Each vector represents a component of x or y R = A + B + C Used to determine the resultant vector when each vectors are added together. Each represents a vector 3 Jerry D. Wilson and Cecilia A. Hernandez, Physics Laboratory Experiments Revised Eighth Edition 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 PAGE 4
Conclusion 4 : A. Analysis of data and results The theory behind this experiment was to use different methods to determine the vectors 5 , a magnitude and direction. The methods used was during this experiment was Triangle Method, Vector Addition Method, and Component 6 , projection of a vector on an axis. Triangle Method was used to determine the vector graphically using the Pythagorean Theorem, Vector Addition Method was used to determine the vector analytically and lastly Component Method was used to
