Two trees have perfectly straight trunks and are both growing perpendicular to the flat horizontal ground beneath them. the sides of the trunks that face each other are 1.0m apart. a squirrel makes three jumps, first leaps from the foot of one tree to a spot that is 1.0m above the ground on the other tree. then, he jumps to the other tree, landing on a spot 1.7m above the ground. finally he leaps to other tree 2.5m above ground. whats the magnitude of the squirrel's displacement?
