The car rounds the curve at constant speed and then speeds up slightly as it heads off East. Draw a complete motion diagram for the car as seen by a helicopter hovering overhead. Show graphically how you obtain at least two of your acceleration vectors. [2] (10 pts) The grid below shows two vectors. (a) In the grid provided graphically determine the resultant vector r R = r A + 2 r B . (b) Express the resultant vector R in unit vector notation. (c) Then determine the magnitude of your resultant vector R and its angle with respect to the positive x-axis.
