Textbook Problem

A vector A has components Ax = −5.00 m and Ay = 9.00 m. Find (a) the magnitude and (b) the direction of the vector.

(a)

To determine
The magnitude of the vector (A) .

Explanation

Given Info: The x component of vector (A) is (5m) .

The y component of vector (A) is (9m) .

Formula to calculate the magnitude of the vector is,

|A|=Ax2+Ay2

  • |A| is magnitude of the vector,
  • Axand Ay are the x and y component of vector respectively

(b)

To determine
The direction of the vector (A) .
