: After plotting the two Vectors a resultant can then be drawn in to see the resulting vectoring. Using the information given and a protractor, the direction is found as well as the magnitude. For this graph you can see that the resultant vector had a length of 6.1cm and a force of 0.305g. This was found using Pythagorean Theorem. Also the direction that was found graphically was 45 ° . Pythagorean Theorem Formula used : a 2 + b 2 = c 2 ( A = onesideof the triangle ,B = one sideof the triangle ,C = the hypotenuse ) Analytical : Breaking up the two vector forces into components then adding them together we find that the Resultant vector force to be 0.3041g, and using the inverse Tangent function the angle of the Resultant force is found to be 45 ° .

Name Method: Graphical : After plotting the two Vectors a resultant can then be drawn in to see the resulting vectoring. Using the information given and a protractor, the direction is found as well as the magnitude. For this graph you can see that the resultant vector had a length of 5cm and a force of 0.25g. This was found using Pythagorean Theorem. Also the direction that was found graphically was 36 ° . Pythagorean Theorem Formula used : a 2 + b 2 = c 2 ( A = onesideof the triangle ,B = one sideof the triangle ,C = the hypotenuse ) Analytical : Breaking up the two vector forces into components then adding them together we find that the Resultant vector force to be 0.25g, and using the Page 5 of 11
Name inverse Tangent function the angle of the Resultant force is found to be 36.9 ° . Vector Resolution: Graphical and Analytical Method: Graphical : After plotting the Vector using the information given, it is then broken up into components to find the force x = 0.15 g and the force y = 0.26g. Analytical : Breaking up the Force Vector into its components both the x, y forces can be obtained. F x = 0.15 g And F y = 0.26 g. Vector Addition IV: Graphical and Analytical Page 6 of 11
