Question Problem In the figure, let denote the displacement of the car (215 km) towards west and represent the displacement towards southwest (85 km). Then the displacement of the car from the point of origin is shown in magnitude and direction by the resultant vector . To find the magnitude of displacement of the car. Resolve the vector along the and axes as and respectively. The displacement vector is specified by the equation . Resolve the vector into its components along the and axes as and . Similarly resolve the vector along the axis as and . The angle between and is . Using the law of vector addition find the magnitudes of

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
