Add the following vectors using the components method a) 35[N] + 25[S] b) 163[S] + 37[W] c) 275[N] – 200[E] d) 256 [25o N of E] + 313[5o S of E] e) 1.56[13oN of W] – 3.25[27oN of E] 8. Three forces act at point P at the same time, as shown on the force vector diagram below. What is the magnitude of the resultant force vector? 9. A pilot points an aircraft due east, while the wind blows from the south. The resultant velocity of the aircraft over the ground is 64 m/s, 25° N of E . At what speed does the wind blow? 10. Pamela swims at 2.8 m s relative to the water, heading west. The current flows south at 1.2 m s. Find Pamela’s resultant direction.
