    To calculate the angle of dip and resultant magnetic field, we can use the following formulas:

    1. Angle of Dip (θ):

    θ = tan^(-1)(Bv / Bh)

    where:

    Bh = horizontal component of Earth’s magnetic field

    Bv = vertical component of Earth’s magnetic field

    Plugging in the given values:

    Bh = 0.17 G

    Bv = 0.26 G

    θ = tan^(-1)(0.26 / 0.17)

    Calculating θ:

    θ ≈ 58.06 degrees

    2. Resultant Magnetic Field (B):

    B = √(Bh^2 + Bv^2)

    Plugging in the given values:

    Bh = 0.17 G

    Bv = 0.26 G

    B = √(0.17^2 + 0.26^2)

    Calculating B:

    B ≈ 0.31 G (rounded to two decimal places)

    Therefore, the angle of dip is approximately 58.06 degrees, and the resultant magnetic field is approximately 0.31 G.
