when adding vectors, join them tail to tip
the vector from the beginning to the end of the path is called the resultant
include a magnitude AND direction!
choose a scale factor that is reasonable for the paper you are using
scale factor = scale distance/actual distance
to find how long to scale a distance to, multiply the actual distance by the scale factor
directions should always be taken from east or west

1. Join vectors tip to tail and draw the resultant vector
2. Calculate the magnitude of the resultant with the pythagorean theorem
3. Calculate the direction of the resultant with the arctan function (tan inverse)
1. Break down the given vectors into x and y components
2. Sum the x and y components to determine the resultant vector
3. Calculate the magnitude of the resultant with the pythagorean theorem

Major League baseballs have an average mass of 5.125 ounces, and a 90-mph fastball can leave the bat at 110 mph. Extrapolating Newton's second law of motion, Russell determined that, in a collision lasting less than one-thousandth of a second, the average pro swing imparts 4145 pounds of force to the ball. Peak forces exceed 8300 pounds -- enough to stop a Mini Cooper, rolling at 10 mph, in its tracks.
