What is her total displacement from the office? Correct answer: 132 . 378 km. Explanation: Basic Concepts Choose a coordinate system with the positive x-axis representing 0 and the positive y-axis representing 90 . Solution S 1 S S S 2 S 1 S 2 S 2n S n S 2e S e For the vector s 2 angled at north of east, the north component s 2 n is the side opposite the angle and the east component s 2 e is the side adjacent. The north component of the final displace- ment is s n = s 1 + s 2 n = s 1 + s 2 sin The east component of the final displacement is s e = s 2 e = s 2 cos The total displacement is the hypotenuse of the right triangle formed by s n and s e , so s = radicalBig s 2 n + s 2 e 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points At what angle is her displacement? (Consider east to be 0...
