A person walks 37.0◦ north of east for 5.00
km. Another person walks due north and due
east to arrive at the same location.
How large is the east component of this
second path?

  • physics -

    use cosine to find the east component. you use the equation x=Vcos37.
    5.00km * cos37 will give you the answer.
