An airplane flies 340 km due east, makes a
right-angle turn, and then flies 390 km due
north.
Find the magnitude of the plane’s displace-
ment from its starting point. Neglect the
curvature of the earth.
Answer in units of km

  • Physics -

    340^2+390^2=267700
    take the square root of 267700 n it equals abt 517.397
