If the sailor’s eye level is h2 = 15 .5 ft above the water, how far is the ship from the rocks? Problem 10: (a) Rank the vectors in the diagram in order of increasing magnitude. (b) Rank the vectors in order of increasing value of their x components. (c) Rank the vectors in the above diagram in order of increasing value of their y components. Problem 11: The velocity vector V1 has a magnitude of 4 .0 m/s and is directed along the +x-axis. The velocity vector V2 has a magnitude of 3 .0 m/s. The sum of the two is V3 , so that V3 = V1 + V2 . Which of the f...
