Vector sum

The magnitude of the vector u is 12 and the magnitude of the vector v is 8. Angle between vectors is 61°. What is the magnitude of the vector u + v?

Result

x =  17.35

Solution:

u+v2=u2+v22uvcos(18061) u+v=17.35|u+v|^2 = |u|^2+|v|^2-2|u||v|\cos (180 ^\circ -61 ^\circ ) \ \\ |u+v| = 17.35
