Question

A plane flies from a base a distance 280 km at a direction of 10.0° north of east for 2 hours and then flies 190 km 30.0° west of north for 1 hour. The magnitude and direction of the plane displacement at the end of this trip are:

Answer #1

A plane takes off from an airport and flies to town A,
located
d1 = 285 km
from the airport in the direction 20.0° north of east. The
plane then flies to town B, located
d2 = 220 km
at 30.0° west of north from town A. Use graphical methods to
determine the distance and direction from town B to the airport.
(Enter the distance in km and the direction in degrees south of
west.)

a) A roller coaster moves 200 ft horizontally and then rises 135
ft at an angle of 30.0° above the horizontal. Next, it travels 135
ft at an angle of 40.0° below the horizontal. Use graphical
techniques to find the roller coaster's displacement from its
starting point at the end of this movement.
b) A plane flies from base camp to lake A, a distance of 280 km
at a direction of 20.0° north of east. After dropping off supplies,...

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...

An airplane undergoes the following displacements: First, it
flies 45 km in a direction 30° east of north. Next, it flies 76 km
due south. Finally, it flies 100 km 30° north of west.
A) Using analytical methods, determine how far the airplane ends
up from its starting point.

A hiker walks 3.55 km north and then 2.50 km east, all in 4.00
hours.
(a)Calculate the magnitude (in km) and direction (in degrees
north of east) of the hiker's displacement during the given
time.
magnitude in km
direction ° north of east
(b)Calculate the magnitude (in km/h) and direction (in degrees
north of east) of the hiker's average velocity during the given
time.
magnitude in km/h
direction ° north of east
(c)What was her average speed (in km/h) during...

A hiker walks 2.5 km at an angle of 45 degrees north of west,
and then hikes 4.0 km at an angle of 30 degrees north of
east. What is the displacement of the hiker from
the origin (magnitude and direction)? Determine the
magnitude and direction by adding the vectors graphically
and mathematically. Be sure to attach
your graph.
Magnitude (from graph):
_______
Magnitude (mathematical) : ______
Direction (from graph):
_______
Direction (mathematical) : ______

. Two airplanes depart from the same place at 1PM. One plane
flies north at a speed of 365 km/hr and the other flies east at a
speed of 484 km/hr. How far apart are they at 5PM?

Marcus and Cody want to hike to a destination 12.0 km north of
their starting point. Before heading directly to the destination,
Marcus walks 11.0 km in a direction that is 30.0∘∘ north of east
and Cody walks 11.0 km in a direction that is 45.0∘∘ north of
west.
1) How much farther must Marcus's hike on the second part of the
trip? (Express your answer to three significant
figures.)
2) How much farther must Cody's hike on the second...

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?
