Serway CP 03 14 04:01, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 001 (part 1 of 1) 2 points A quarterback takes the ball from the line of scrimmage, runs backward for 10 yards, then runs sideways parallel to the line of scrim- mage for 15 yards. At this point, he throws a 50 yards forward pass straight downfield perpendicular to the line of scrimmage. What is the magnitude of the footballs resultant displacement? Correct answer: 42 . 72 yards. Explanation: Let the x direction be parallel to line of scrimmage. Given : y 1 =- 10 yards , x = 15 yards , and y 2 = 50 yards . y tot = y 1 + y 2 =- 10 yards + 50 yards = 40 yards x tot = x = 15 yards The displacements are perpendicular, so d = q ( x tot ) 2 + ( y tot ) 2 = q ( 15 yards) 2 + (40 yards) 2 = 42 . 72 yards . keywords: Angled Projectile 02 04:06, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, wording-variable....
