Circle the best answer in each case. [1A.] The motion of an airplane leaving from Miami can be described using a Cartesian coordinate system with due East coincident with the positive x-direction and due North with the positive y-direction. The position vector r ( t ) of the plane as a function of time can then be written as vector r ( t ) = (50 . m s 3 ) t 3 ˆ i + (600 . m s ) t ˆ j . At what positive time is the airplane moving in the North-East direction? [a] t = 4 . 00 s [b] t = 4 . 000 s [c] t = 2 . 00 s [d] t = 2 . 000 s [e] t = 12 . s [1B.] You want to buy a heavy sofa and you need the help of your friend Bob. Starting from your house you travel 4 km east to pick up Bob, then 3 km north to get to the store, then you travel back home following a straight line from the store to your house.
