D3.1
Graphically, find the resultant of adding these three vectors. That is, graphically find R = A + B + C.
Is that the same as R_{1} = A + C + B?
What about R_{2} = B + C + A?
And what abour R_{3} = C + B + A?
D3.2 Find the components of the following vectors:
A = 10 km, 60° W of N
B = 25 km, 37° E of S
C = 10 km, 53° W of S
As always, sketches are important. Draw these vectors first; only then should you
begin your calculations.
D3.3 Now add the components that we calculated in Problem D3.2 above.
What is the Resultant?
