A man walks 40 meters north and turns and walks 60 meters in a direction 30 degrees to the east of north.
What is the distance traveled?
What is his displacement?

  • physics -

    Figure the E and N components fo the second walk,then add as vectors to the original N walk.

    distance of course is 100m.
    diplacement is the resultant vector.

  • physics -

    what is the resultant vector? I don't understand.

  • physics -

    Break the sixty meter into components:

    then add the original N walk, then find the resultant displacement.
