Dueling Magnetic Fields, Direction

APPH12-VBWVK2

Two strong magnets are placed so that the magnetic field of magnet $A$ has a magnetic field of $0.80$ $T$ to the West at point $P$. Magnet $B$ has a magnetic field of $1.50$ $T$ to the North at the same point $P$.

What is the direction of net magnetic field at point $P$ due to both magnet $A$ and magnet $B$?

A

It cannot be represented by a single direction because magnetic fields do not interact.

B

32 degrees North of West.

C

28 degrees North of West.

D

62 degrees North of West.
