A delivery truck travels 20 blocks north, 15 blocks east and 18 blocks south. What is its final displacement from the origin? Assume the blocks are equal length.

  • Physics -

    It is 53 blocks. (supposing that's what you meant!)

  • Physics -

    Displacement=sqrt{(20-18)^2 +15^2}=15.13 m

  • Physics :-) -

    I like the 15.13, but where did you come up with meters? :-)
