A Visually Complicated Vector Addition Problem using Component Vectors (7:57)
This visually confusing tip-to-tail vector addition problem can be solved just like our previous problems. Give your vectors names, draw a vector diagram, break vectors in to components, redraw the vector diagram, create a data table, add columns and solve using basic trig.
