24. In a 2-dimensional Cartesian system, the y-component of a vector is known, and the angle between vector and x-axis is known. Which operation is used to calculate the magnitude of the vector? (taken with respect to the y-component)

  • Physics -

    The magnitude of the vector is
    (y component)/sin A

    where A is the angle between the vector and the-x axis
