    What is the correct formula to calculate the angle of vector A = 0i + 1j

    I know the angle is 90 degrees. and the formula to calculate the angle of vector A is inverse tan of (Ay / Ax), but Excel returns an error message because Ax is zero. Thanks.

    Vector magnitude

    Two forces, each equal to P, act at right angles. Their effect may be neutralized by a third force acting along their bisector in the opposite direction with a magnitude of___________ in this diagram, the resultant vector is the opposite direction, So what should I do the addition of vector or...

    Angle of space motion and radial-velocity vector

    Hello So I am trying to figure out the angle of a space motion vector with its radial velocity vector. I have to sample equations, but despite plugging in the numbers I am not getting the same answers. So I have: tan-1((4.74d(u")/(vr)) With: d = 5.14 pc u" = 0.66092" vr = -26.3km s-1...

    What is the difference between a vector and a scaler in 1 dimension.

    Lets say we have -10 as a vector and we have a scalar also having value -10 in one dimension. So whats the difference?

    Finding a position vector of a pivot on a lever from its torque

    Hi guys, I have a problem here which I'm really stumped on. I have a rigid rod of 3.1m length, with two equal masses at either end. The pivot is placed so that the total torque is 25k N.m about the pivot, and I need to find it's location. I've drawn a diagram, a basis, calculated that the...

    Vector and direction

    Suppose you walk 17.0 m straight west and then 39.0 m straight north. How far are you from your starting point? What is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (N of W ) The first question is easy to answer. It is 42.5m. But the second is...

    Eigen Vector for Photon

    I know that the spin matrix for the photon represents the photon's intrinsic angular momentum. Does the eigenvector for the photon's spin matrix represent something as well? It seems to me that it would be natural to think of it as giving the intrinsic angular velocity of the photon. But I...

    just can't get the vector right on this one

    so here we are with vector; Ax + Bx = Cx fine. vector B is 2 times vector A fine. Bx should = (2A)cos(theta) fine. Cx is 350(Newtons)x + 0y..........straight up the x axis B is 25 Degrees west of north ok what is the magnitude and direction of A...? how do I arrive at; (2A)sin(25) =...

    Why is work not a vector?

    I know force is a vector and force times distance times cosmos angle equals work. Thanks Physics forum!
