A journey consists of two displacements: the first is 500m in a northerly direction and the second is 200m in an easterly direction.

In a space below draw, to scale, a vector diagram of these displacements.

State the scale of your diagram.
On your diagram, show the two displacements and the resultant displacement. Determine the size (magnitude) and direction of the resultant displacement.
