An air traffic controller observes two airplanes approaching the airport. The displacement from the control tower to plane 1 is given by the vector A , which has a magnitude of 220 km and points in a direction 32 degrees north of west. The displacement from the control tower to plane 2 is given by the vector B , which has a magnitude of 140 km and points 65 degrees east of north.sketch the vectors A, B and D=A-B.Notice that vector D is the displacement from plane 2 to plane 1. Find the direction and magnitude of vector D.
