station from the east. At first observation (point A), the position of the airplane relative to the origin is . The position vector has a magnitude of 360 and is located at exactly 40 above the horizon. The airplane is tracked for another 123 in the vertical east- west plane for 5.0 , until it has passed directly over the station and reached point B. The position of point B relative to the origin is (the magnitude of is 880 ). The contact points are shown in the diagram, where the x axis represents the ground and the positive z direction is upward. Part A Define the displacement of the airplane while the radar was tracking it: . What are the components of ?
