In unitvector notation, what is the sum of vector a =(4m)i + (3m)j and vector b= (13m)i +(7m)j?
a)I got (27m)i +(10m)j but the book said it should have been (9m)i +(10m)j
b)what is the magnitude and direction of vector a + vector b (relative to i)?
to find the magnitude i did the sqrt((9^2 + 10^2) and then I got 13.453
I wasn't sure how to find the direction.
I am wondering how you got 27i? The i component of a was 4, and the i component of b was 13. Adding them gets the book answer.
Magnitude of the sum: (13)^2 + (10)^2= 269, and the square of that is ....
Direction: arctan (10/13)
