Textbook Problem

A vector has an x-component of −25.0 units and a y-component of 40.0 units. Find the magnitude and direction of the vector.

To determine
The magnitude and direction of the vector.

Explanation

Given Info: The x component of the vector (Ax) is (25units) and y component of the vector (Ay) is 40units , the x component of the vector (Ax) is (25units) , and y component of the vector (Ay) is 40units

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the magnitude of the vector is,

A=Ax2+Ay2

  • Ax is x component of the vector,
  • Ay is y component of the vector,

Substitute (25units) for Ax , 40units for Ay to find A .

A=(25units)2+(40units)2=47
