Mission VP4: Adding Right Angle Vectors


Mission VP4 requires that you add two vectors that are at right angles to each other in order to determine the magnitude and the direction of the resultant. The mission consists of 27 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...

 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to use the Pythagorean theorem to add two or more vectors in order to determine the magnitude of the resultant.
  • The student should be able to trigonometric principles to add two or more vectors in order to determine the direction of the resultant.
