[SOLVED] Can vector be broken down to components?
Hi. Here is the URL with some examples: Basic Vector Operations , bottom of the page.
Suppose we have four vectors (A, B, C, D). We know their magnitudes and angles (directions). We add them and produce a new vector R. Let's consider a different situation. Let's say we are given only the resulting vector R (magitude and angle) and number of vectors (4) added to generate the R vector. Can we determine magnitudes and angles of these individual vectors (all of which are unknown)? Thanks.
