Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, January 19, 2009 at 8:59pm.

A hiker follows a route that consists of three displacement vectors A, B, and C. Vector A is along a measured trail and is 1550 meters in a direction 25 degrees north of east. The direction of Vector B is 41 degrees east of south, and the direction of vector C is 35 degrees north of west. The hiker ends up back where at the original starting point, so the reslultant displacement is zero or A+B+C=0. Find the magnitudes of Vectors B and C.

An explanation of the answer with some work would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
