1) The sum has magnitude 7.0.
(a)They both point in the same direction.
(b)They each point in opposite directions.
(c) They are perpendicular to each other.


2) If the sum has magnitude 5.0.
(a)They both point in the same direction.
(b)They each point in opposite direction.
(c) They are perpendicular to each other.


3) What relationship between the directions gives the smallest magnitude sum?
