A novice golfer on the green takes three strokes to sink the ball. The successive displacements are 3.80 m to the north, 1.90 m northeast, and 1.10 m at 30.0° west of south. Starting at the same initial point, an expert golfer could make the hole in what single displacement?
(need angle in degrees north of east)

    Break up each of those into N and E components. Then add all. The resultant is the direct vector.

  • AP Physics -

    How do you find the angle of resultant vector?
