Steps in Getting Resultant Vector Using COmponent Method

1. given the vector, find its x and y x component by using SOHCAHTOA..when it has direction we have to determine whether its positive(up and right) of negative (left or down)2.after that we have to get the resultant x ny adding up the x components and so on with the resultant Y.3.then we can now compute for the resultant vector by the use of Pythagorean theorem or simply getting the sQuare root of the sum of the sQuared vectors4. after getting the resultant vector we should get the angle of the resultant vector to know whether it is positive or in the negative side.By using the tan formula you can easily get the measure of the angle.
