Question 1:
The pendant will move in the opposite direction to that of the car (backward). This is
because the pendant was in rest position and a force will make it react to resist that
particular force. This resistive force is called inertia.
Question 2:
1) A vector has an x-component of
27.0
units and a y-component of 52.0 units. Find the magnitude and direction of the vector.
