The diagram shows components that have been added together to form Rx and Ry. Rx and Ry are the components of the resultant vector.
Which formula can be used to find the magnitude of the resultant vector?
R2 = Rx2 + Ry2
R = Rx + Ry
R = Rx(cosθ)
R = Rx(sinθ)
R2 = Rx2 + Ry2

Suppose two initial vectors intersect at a right angle and form a resultant vector. The magnitudes of one initial vector, A, and the resultant vector, R, are given.
Which formula can be used to find the magnitude of the other initial vector, B?
B2 = A2 - R2
B2 = R2 + A2
B2 = A + R
B2 = R2 - A2
B2 = R2 - A2
Which equation represents the Pythagorean theorem, which can be used to find the magnitude of resultant vectors?
R = A + B
R = A x B
R2 = A2 x B2
R2 = A2 + B2
R2 = A2 + B2
