30 The line of best-fit does not go through the origin.There is a vertical intercept of about 4 mA. Lines of maximum and minimum slope give intercepts of about 0 and 9 mA implying an error in the intercept of about 4 mA.The intercept is thus (4 ± 4) mA .This just barely includes the origin so the conclusion has to be that they can be proportional.

However, a line of best fit that is a curve can also be fitted through the data and that does go through the origin. (However, it may be objected that this particular functional form is chosen – at low voltages we might expect a straight line (Ohm’s law). So a different functional form may have to be tried.)

A x = +10.0 cos 68° = +3.75 and A y = −10.0 sin 68° = −9.27

A x = +10.0 cos( 90° − 48° ) = +7.43 and A y = −10.0 sin( 90° − 48° ) = −6.69

A x = −10.0 cos( 90° − 30° ) = −5.00 and A y = −10.0 sin( 90° − 30° ) = −8.66

45 The vector we want is

C = ( A + B ) .The components of A and B are:

A x = 6.0 cos 60° = +3.0 and A y = 6.0 sin 60° = +5.20; B x = 6.0 cos 120° = 3.0 and A y = 6.0 sin 120° = +5.20. Hence
