7 kg 2N 3N 8N Find the direction and magnitude of the acceleration of the box.

7 kg 2N 3N 8N Find the direction and magnitude of the acceleration of the box.

These three cartoon creatures are trying to pull a statue. Graphically find the resultant vector if: The Ant applies 100N@220 0 The Penguin 200N@240 0 Jackie Chan 300N@308 0 Which vector is which? Will it move, and which way will it go ? 0 90 180 270

For graphical vector addition to work, the arrows must be drawn at exactly the right angle using a protractor and must be drawn to scale (proportionally) using a ruler. Check this drawing with a ruler and protractor The Ant applies 100N@220 The Penguin 200N@240 Jackie Chan 300N@308

200N 300N 100N R=240N@270 0 Combining the vectors tip to tail, regardless of the order, gives us the resultant. How can we graphically find how big this resultant is?
