Partners: __________________________________________________________ Physics 2207, Fall 2010 1 Cornell University Cooperative Problems 2: Vectors and 2-D Motion 1. Describe two vectors a and b such that: (a) c b a and c b a . (b) b a b a . (c) c b a and 2 2 2 c b a . 2. One afternoon you walk from Noyes Community Center on West Campus to Uris Library. On an ordinary map, the (horizontal) distance between the two buildings is 1100 ft. A topographic map shows that Uris is 150 ft higher than Noyes. (a) Use unit vector notation to specify a vector that represents your displacement from Noyes to Uris. (b) What is the magnitude of your displacement vector? How much greater is this magnitude than the horizontal (ordinary map) distance from Noyes to Uris? (c) What angle does your displacement vector make with the horizontal?
