1. [S2°W] ---> 268°
[N31°W] ---> 121° in standard trig notation

Resultant = 9(cos268° , sin268°) + 11(cos 121°, sin 121°)
= .....

2. All angles are measured CCW from +X-axis
Fr = 9N[268 ]+ 11N[121o].
X = 9*Cos268 + 11*Cos121 =
Y = 9*sin268 + 11*sin121 =

Fr = sqrt(X^2 + Y^2).
TanA = Y/X.

Another one for you :P, add these two vectors using trigonometry (again)... 9N[S2W] and 11N[N31W]...Again, I am confused about the angles, I am not sure what value I should use for the cosine and sine law. THANKS AGAIN!!

How do I do this: add the following vectors , 7m/s [N30E] and 2m/s [S17E] I know that you must use trigonometry and break stuff up into components and use sine and cosine law; just not sure how. Thanks!

Add the following vectors , 7m/s [N30E] and 2m/s [S17E], using trigonometry. Once you draw these out into diagrams, you use the triangle law yes? How do you find the angles to use in the cosine and sine law? A little confused,
