an arctic flying to antarctica encounters a storm. The term changes direction to fly around the storn. if the tern flies 46 km at 15degrees south of east , 22 km at 13 degrees east of south , and finally 14km at 14 degrees west of south what is the tern's resultant displacement
There is an easy way to do this.
1) Convert all bearings from N as 000, clockwise.
add them as vectors:
R= (46Cos105+22Cos167+14Cos194)North + (46Sin105+22Sin167+14Sin194)East
do the math. check my angles.
ummmm dude i did that it came out like . something . like what do you mean convert N?. please explain
