ˆˆ ˆ = [( 755 m) (276 m)]i +(231 m 231 m) j (1031 m) i. r Δ− − − = − G The magnitude of the displacement r Δ G is | | 1031 m. r Δ= G (b) The direction of r Δ G is ˆ i − , or westward. 90. We use a coordinate system with + x eastward and + y upward. (a) We note that 123° is the angle between the initial position and later position vectors, so that the angle from + x to the later position vector is 40° + 123° = 163°. In unit-vector
