## Determine the resultant of the position vectors A and B.

To determine

The resultant vector.

### Explanation of Solution

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,

A+B=(P+Q)+(R+S) =(P+R)+(Q+S)

From the figure P+R is a vertical vector having magnitude 31=2, and directed downwards. Similarly, Q+S is a vertical vector having magnitude 32=1, and directed toward left
