Determine the direction of ->V1 counterclockwise from the +x direction

Determine the direction of ->V2

counterclockwise from the +x direction

**Damon**, Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 4:21amx is - and y is + so quadant 2

tan theta = y/x = 8/6.1

theta = 52.7 degrees up from -x axis

so angle = 180-52.7 = 127.3

Do the second one the same way
