1-6 Chapter 1 1.31. IDENTIFY: Draw each subsequent displacement tail to head with the previous displacement. The resultant displacement is the single vector that points from the starting point to the stopping point. SET UP: Call the three displacements A " , B " , and C " . The resultant displacement R " is given by R=A+B+C " " "" . EXECUTE: The vector addition diagram is given in Figure 1.31. Careful measurement gives that R " is 7.8 km, 38 north of east # . EVALUATE: The magnitude of the resultant displacement, 7.8 km, is less than the sum of the magnitudes of the individual displacements, 2.6 km 4.0 km 3.1 km ++ . Figure 1.31 1.32. IDENTIFY: Draw the vector addition diagram, so scale. SET UP: The two vectors A " and B " are specified in the figure that accompanies the problem. EXECUTE: (a) The diagram for C=A+B " is given in Figure 1.32a. Measuring the length and angle of C " gives 9.0 m C = and an angle of 34 θ = ° . (b) The diagram for D=A B " is given in Figure 1.32b. Measuring the length and angle of D " gives 22 m D = and an angle of 250 = ° . (c) () −− AB = A + B " " , so " " has a magnitude of 9.0 m (the same as A+B " " ) and an angle with the x + axis of 214 ° (opposite to the direction of " " ). (d) B A= A B , so B A " " has a magnitude of 22 m and an angle with the x + axis of 70 ° (opposite to the direction of " " ). EVALUATE: The vector A " is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the vector A " . Figure 1.32 1.33. IDENTIFY: Since she returns to the starting point, the vectors sum of the four displacements must be zero. SET UP: Call the three given displacements A " , B " , and C " , and call the fourth displacement D " . 0 A+B+C+D= . EXECUTE: The vector addition diagram is sketched in Figure 1.33. Careful measurement gives that D " is144 m, 41 south of west. #
