Analysis of data and results
The theory behind this experiment was to use different methods to determine the vectors
5
, a
magnitude and direction. The methods used was during this experiment was Triangle Method,
Vector Addition Method, and Component
6
, projection of a vector on an axis. Triangle Method
was used to determine the vector graphically using the Pythagorean Theorem, Vector Addition
Method was used to determine the vector analytically and lastly Component Method was used to
