**GK**, Tuesday, July 8, 2008 at 11:07pmTo get the coordinates of each point you can use:

(x1, y1) ---> x1=r1*cosA, y1=r1*sinA

(r1 = 1.2km, A = 33deg)

(x2, y2) ---> x2=r2*cosB, y2=r2*sinB

(r2=2.0km, B = 75deg)

The displacement is:

d = sqrt[(x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2]

The direction of the resultant, angle C is:

C = tan^-1[(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)]

(C is measured from the positive x axis)

***Other trigonometric methods are possible or a scale diagram.
