Name: A Visually Complicated Vector Addition Problem using Component Vectors

Category: Kinematics

Date Added: 22 May 2014 - 04:43 PM

Submitter: Flipping Physics

Short Description: None Provided

This visually confusing tip-to-tail vector addition problem can be solved just like our previous problems. Give your vectors names, draw a vector diagram, break vectors in to components, redraw the vector diagram, create a data table, add columns and solve using basic trig.
