Does the vector have an angle associated with it?
 YES

Break the vector into its xcomponents and its ycomponents.

 
 
 
NO









Awesome! That means the vector is only in the xdirection or only in the ydirection.


Add all the xcomponents together.


Add all the ycomponents together.

 
 










 

Using the total x and the total y, plug those values into the resultant magnitude formula.


Using the total x and the total y, plug those values into the resultant angle formula (inverse tan).
