I'm doing a vector problem which involves two forces with an angle of 30 degrees between them acting on an object. I think that I should draw my vector diagram with the vectors coming out of the object while my friend thinks that the vectors should point into the object. Which is right or does it make a difference? Thanks.

    Since a vector shows direction as well as magnitude, the arrow should point in the direction that the forces are acting.
