Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Tina on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 4:03pm.

I know how to do displacement, I just get confused by the directions. I walk 6 blocks east and 5 blocks north-I come up with 7.8 because I squared 6 + squared 5 and took the square root of 61 but do I say the final displacement is 7.8 blocks east of north or 7.8 blocks north of east-that's where I'm confused.

Thank you
