Describing Motion With Words - Intro

# Vector Direction

### Use an accurately-drawn scaled vector diagram to represent the magnitude and direction of the following vectors in questions #7-12. Use the indicated scale and the counter-clockwise convention discussed in class. Click on the hot link to check the answers.

7. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 10 m, represent the vector 50 m, 30-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

8. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 10 m, represent the vector 60 m, 150-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

9. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 20 m, represent the vector 140 m/s, 200-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

10. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 15 m/s, represent the vector 120 m/s, 240-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

11. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 5 m/s, represent the vector 35 m/s, 270-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

12. Given the SCALE: 1 cm = 5 m/s, represent the vector 31 m/s, 310-degrees by a scaled vector diagram.

NOTE: Since your answers were determined using a scaled vector diagram, small errors in the measurement of the direction and magnitude of any one of the vectors may lead to small differences between your answers and the correct ones which are shown here. Do not have a cow.
