Product Description
This is an exercise in combining vectors that are not at right angles.

There are 6 different versions of this exercise on one page.

Each 1/6 sheet has a full page detailed solution for laminating.

Each problem is 5 vectors given a magnitude and direction in 0-360 notation.

Ex: 452 units @ 312 °

Two of the vectors are already 0°, 90°, 180°, or 270°.
The other three vectors must be broken into components before combining all components and finding one resultant.

I have never seen an actual physics problem with this many vectors at
odd angles! But taking the time to do exercises like this make problems like the exploding object (conservation of momentum) and force table labs go smoothly.

I use this in class and give students a few minutes to start before changing seats to be by classmates with the same problem. (easily identified by a ball or puck)

Please note the purchase of this file is a license for use by all the students of ONE teacher. Additional licenses (for colleagues) are available for just 50 cents.
