Vector A = 1.00i - 2.00j and vector B = -3.00i + 5.00j. Calculate the magnitude and direction of vector C if vector C = A - B.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given Vectors,             A = 1i - 2j

                                             B = -3i+5j

Find: Magnitude and direction of C = A-B

Step 2

Calculate, C = A - B

C = A-B

We got, C = 4i-7j

Step 3

Now, calculate magnitude of C:

Thus, magn...
