Homework Help: Physics. Urgent help need!!

Posted by Papito on Monday, May 7, 2007 at 10:37am.

A baseball player hits a triple and ends up on third base. The baseball "diamond" is a square, each side with length 24.2 m, with home plate and the three bases on the four corners. What is the magnitude of his displacement?


* I'm not familiar with the sport

i divided the diamond into two diagonally, then, using the pythagorean theorem I found the hypotenus. but i dont think that is right. Please help

pythagorean theorem is a + b =c

If the 'diamond' is a square, and he's 3/4 round it (3rd base), he's one side length from home. Displacement is'nt how far he went, it's how far he is from the start point. 24.2m.
