Question

the x and y components of a vector in a horizontal plane are 4.00 m and 3.00 m, repectively.

(a) what is the maginitude of this vector?

(b) what angle does this vector make with the positive y axis?

Step 1

The x-component of the vector is 4.00 m and the y-component of the vector is 3.00 m.

 

Step 2

(a)

To determine: The magnitude of the vector

Here, A is the magnitude of the vector, Ax is the x-component of the vector and Ay is the y-component of the vector.

Step 3

Substitute 4.00 m for Ax and 3.00 m for Ay in the above equation to find A

Thus, th...
