1. When finding the magnitude and direction of two perpendicular vector how do write the direction. For example when adding 2 perpendicular vectors a and b. If the direction is 60 degrees and close to vector a and the magnitude is c, how do you write the magnitude and direction in a sentence.
2. Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

Just quoting in Fox Corner so she can move the thread if needed

Do you have a diagram or question to show? Your question is a bit jumbled

The magnitude can be computed using the Pythagorean theorem.

I believe for the direction, you can write the resultant vector c is from vector a.

The magnitude is the length of the resultant vector c - measure it or compute it using sine or cosine rule.

The direction of the resultant vector c is from vector a.
