**Reiny**, Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:04pmmake your sketch using the parallelogram property of vectors.

The resultant of 8 will be the diagonal of the quadrilateral with sides 3 and 8

let the angle opposite the resultant be Ø

by the cosine law:

8^2 = 8^2 + 3^2 - 2(8)(3)cos∏

48cosØ = 9

cosØ = 9/48

Ø = 79.163°

so by the ||gm property, the angle between the two vectors is

180-79.163 = appr 100.8°
