A football player runs the pattern given in the drawing by the three displacement vectors A, B, and C . The magnitudes of these vectors are A = 5 m, B = 16.0 m, and C = 16.0 m. Using the component method, find the magnitude and direction è of the resultant vector A,B,C. (Assume that up along the screen is the positive y-axis and that right is the positive x-axis.) The figure that is shown has vector A going up, B going from A's tip to the right (there's a 90 degree angle between A and B) then C going from B's tip to a 35 degree angle downward. A,B, and C are all connected be another vector.The theta that they want to find is at the tail of A.
