Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A particle undergoes three displacements. The first has a magnitude of 15 m and makes an angle of 38 ◦ with the positive x axis. The second has a magnitude of 7 m and makes an angle of 144 ◦ with the positive x axis. (see the figure below). After the third displacement the particle returns to its initial position. 144 ◦ 38 ◦ 1 5 m 7 m Find the magnitude of the third displace ment. Correct answer: 14 . 7009 m. Explanation: Given : bardbl vector A bardbl = 15 m , θ a = 38 ◦ , bardbl vector B bardbl = 7 m , and θ B = 144 ◦ . θ C θ A θ B A B C − C Since vector A + vector B + vector C = 0 , we have vector C = − vector A − vector B . The components of the third displacement vector C are C x = − A x − B x = − A cos θ A − B cos θ b = − (15 m) cos 38 ◦ − (7 m) cos144 ◦ = − (11 . 8202 m) − ( − 5 . 66312 m) = − 6 . 15704 m and C y = − A y − B x = − A sin θ A − B sin θ b = − (15 m) sin 38 ◦ − (7 m) sin144 ◦ = − (9 . 23492 m) − (4 . 1145 m) = − 13 . 3494 m .
