Chapter 3, Vectors and Two-Dimensional Motion 25 7. The first displacement is 6 m and the second displacement is 3 m. They cannot add together to give a total displacement of: a. 2 m. b. 3 m. c. 6 m. d. 9 m. 8. Vector A r is 3 m long and vector B r is 4 m long. The length of the sum of the vectors must be: a. 5 m. b. 7 m. c. 12 m. d. some value from 1 m to 7 m. 9. When three vectors are added graphically and form a closed triangle, the largest enclosed angle between any two of the vectors cannot be greater than: a. 60 ° . b. 90 ° . c. 180 ° . d. No maximum exists. 10. A runner circles a track of radius 100 m one time in 100 s at a constant rate. The greatest change in his velocity from his starting velocity: a. occurs one-fourth of the way around the track. b. occurs one-half of the way around the track. c. occurs three-fourths of the way around the track. d. Both a and c are correct. 3.2 Components of a Vector 11. An object, initially moving in the negative x-direction, is subjected to a change in velocity in the positive y-direction. If the resulting velocity vector is drawn from the origin, into which quadrant does this vector point? a. 1 st b. 2 nd c. 3 rd d. None, since the object is now moving in the y-direction.
