Example 2.1: A man walks 5 m at 37 0 north of east and then 10m at 60 0 west of north. What is the magnitude and direction of his net displacement? R x =A x + B x =5cos37 0 -10sin60 0 = -4.66m R y =A y +B y =5sin37 0 +10cos60 0 = 8.00m R=(R x 2 +R y 2 ) 0.5 = 9.26m tanθ = R y /R x = 8/-4.66= -1.72 Θ could be 120 0 or –60 0 , since R x is negative and R y is positive, the vector lies in the second quadrant and so Θ =120 0 to the +x axis. The net displacement is 9.26m at 30 0 west of north
