    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.

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

    The magnitude can be computed using the Pythagorean theorem.

     |\vec{c}| = \sqrt{|\vec{a}|^2 + |\vec{b}|^2 }

    I believe for the direction, you can write the resultant vector c is  .... ^{\circ} 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  .... ^{\circ} from vector a.
