The summit of a mountain, 2270 above base camp, is measured on a map to be 4610 horizontally from the camp in a direction 30.9 west of north.What are the components of the displacement vector from camp to summit? Choose the axis east, axis north, and axis up.What is its magnitude?

  • physics -

    x is east
    y is north
    z is up I assume

    x = -4610 sin 30.9 East
    y = +4610 cos 30.9 North
    z = +2270
