While exploring a cave, a spelunker starts at the entrance and moves the following distances: 75.0 m north, 275 m east, 160 m at an angle 30.0° north of east, and 150 m south. Find the resultant displacement from the cave entrance.

What School Subject is tsu?

The net north displacement is: 75 +80 sin 30 - 150 = -35. or 35 m south The net eastward displacement is 275 + 160 cos 30 = 413.6 m The total distance moved is given by D^2 = (35)^2 + (413.6)^2 D = 415.0 m
