A football player runs the pattern given in the drawing by the three displacement vectors , , and . The magnitudes of these vectors are A = 6.00 m, B = 13.0 m, and C = 15.0 m. Using the component method, find the (a) magnitude and (b)direction of the resultant vector + + . Take to be a positive angle.
