Question

Suppose you walk 15 m in a direction exactly 19° south of west then you walk 19.5 m in a direction exactly 41° west of north.

a.) How far are you from your starting point in m?

b.) What is the angle of the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position measured North of West in degrees?

c.) Repeat part (a) by finding your distance from the starting point in m, but reverse the order of the two legs of the walk. That is, you first walk leg B, which is 19.5 m in a direction exactly 41° west of north, and then leg A, which is 15 in a direction exactly 19° south of west.

d.) What is the angle of the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position measured North of West in degrees?

Suppose you walk in a direction of 40◦ North of East for a
distance of 5 m, then
walk in a direction of 25◦ South of West for a distance of 10
m, then walk due
East for a distance of 6 m. Find the distance and direction of
your final location
with respect to your starting point

Your map says "Walk due south for 30.0 paces, then walk 80.0
degrees west of north for 50.0 paces, and finally wlak 40.0 degrees

(magnitude and direction) from your starting point. b) Which
direction (in degrees) do you have to head to get back to your
starting point?

An airplane pilot sets a compass course due west and maintains

I start walking. The 1st leg of my trip I walk
dA = 150 m at θA = 18°
south of east. The 2nd leg of my trip I walk
dB = 105 m at θB = 17°
north of east. On my final leg I walk dC = 95 m
at θC = 58° north of west. Choose the
coordinate system so that x is directed towards the east,
and y is directed towards the north. Part a) Write...

Your directions on a scavenger hunt map say to walk 42 m east,
then 35 m south, then 28 m 20° north of west. The positive x
direction is the direction to the east and the positive y direction
is the direction to the north. What are the magnitude and direction
of your displacement?

You decide that you want to take a walk to enjoy the nice
afternoon weather. You leave your house and walk 20 m due east.
Then in some unknown direction for some unknown distance. From this
unknown position, to get back home, you find that you have to
travel 8 m west and 10 m north. How far and in what direction did
you walk for your second leg of your trip (the unknown leg)?

student is located 225 m and 35.0° north of west from
her initial position. She walked from her initial position to her
final position in two stages. In the first stage of her walk, she
walked 150 m at 20.0° south of east. How far and in what direction
did she walk in the second part? .
