A regional airline flight consists of two legs with an intermediate stop. The airplane flies 380 due north from airport A to airport B. From there, it flies 260 due east to its final destination at airport C.

Part A

What is the magnitude of the plane’s displacement from its starting point?

Part B

What is the direction of the plane’s displacement from its starting point?

Part C

If the first leg takes 50 and the second leg 45 , what is the magnitude of the average velocity for the trip?

Part D

What is the direction of the average velocity for the trip?

Part E

What is the average speed for the trip?

Part F

Why is the average speed not the same as the magnitude for the average velocity?
