On a safari, a team of naturalists sets out toward a research station located 6.3 km away in a direction 42° north of east. After traveling in a straight line for 2.2 km, they stop and discover that they have been traveling 23° north of east, because their guide misread his compass. What are the magnitude and direction (relative to due east) of the displacement vector now required to bring the team to the research station?

find magnitude and direction. show all steps!!!

  • Physics -

    The displacement vector required to reach the station is the original vector to the station, minus the vector of their actual initial travel.

    This is a vector subtraction ptoblem.

    You will have to do the steps yourself. We are not here to do your homework for you.
