Determine the resultant of the position vectors A and B.

To determine

The resultant vector.

**Calculation:**

The given position vectors A and B are resultant vectors of P and Q, and R and S respectively.

P is an upward vertical vector of magnitude 1 m, Q is a horizontal vector directed towards left with magnitude 3 m, R is a downward vertical vector having magnitude 3 m, and S is a horizontal vector directed towards right having magnitude 2 m. So,

From the figure
