Question

1. First you walk 5.38 m in a direction 35.0 degrees north of
east. Then you walk 8.50 m in a direction 60.0 degrees south of
east. What is your total * displacement* for
this trip, both magnitude and direction?

2. You fly from New York City to Los Angeles with a stopover in
Chicago. The entire trip takes 7 hours and 15 minutes, with the
stopover in Chicago lasting 1 hour and 10 minutes. What was the
* magnitude of your average velocity* for
the entire trip, measured in miles per hour?(have to look up
distance of each).

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
south of east for 40.0 paces." a) Find your resultant displacement
(magnitude and direction) from your starting point. b) Which
direction (in degrees) do you have to head to get back to your
starting point?

Suppose you first walk 10.5 m in a direction 20° west of north
and then 25 m in a direction 40° south of west.
a. What is the component of your displacement in the
x-direction?
b. What is the component of your displacement in the
y-direction?
c. How far are you from your starting point?
d. What is the angle of a line connecting your starting position
to your final position, measured South of West, in degrees?

The map below shows that Atlanta is 730 miles in a direction
5.00° north of east from Dallas, and that Chicago is 560 miles in a
direction 21.0° west of north from Atlanta. Assuming the Earth may
be approximated as flat across this map, what is the displacement
from Dallas to Chicago? Find its magnitude (in mi) and direction
(in degrees) as measured counterclockwise from due east of
Dallas.
magnitude____________ mi
direction_____________ ° counterclockwise from due east of
Dallas

Suppose you walk 7.5m in a direction 20degrees west of north and
then travel 17m in a direction 40degrees south of west. a) how far
are you from your starting point in meters? b) what is the angle,
in degrees, of the compass direction of a line connecting your
starting point to your final position measured south of west? c)
repeat a, but for the 2nd leg you walk 17m in a direction 40degrees
north of east. d) repeat a,...

A student undergoes a first displacement of 6.0 m at an angle of
50 degrees north of east. The student undergoes a second
displacement of 3.0 m at an angle of 40 degrees south of east. The
magnitude of the total displacement is
6.71 m
2.67 m
3.86 m
2.30 m
6.16 m

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?
Starting from rest, a cart takes 1.55 s to slide 1.90 m down an
inclined frictionless track. What is the angle of incline of the
track...

A 379-kg boat is sailing 11.0° north of east at a speed of 1.80
m/s. 35.0 s later, it is sailing 38.0° north of east at a speed of
4.30 m/s. During this time, three forces act on the boat: a 32.1-N
force directed 11.0° north of east (due to an auxiliary engine), a
21.8-N force directed 11.0° south of west (resistance due to the
water), and (due to the wind). Find the (a) the magnitude and (b)
direction of...

Starting at an origin, you travel a distance 199 miles in a
direction 21.5 degrees north of west. Then, from this new position,
you travel another distance 114 miles in a direction 24.7 degrees
north of east. In your final position, what is your displacement
from origin?

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...
