A sailboat race course consists of four legs, defined by the displacement vectors , , , and , as the drawing indicates. The magnitudes of the first three vectors are A = 2.80 km, B = 4.70 km, and C = 4.50 km. The finish line of the course coincides with the starting line. Using the data in the drawing, find (a) the distance of the fourth leg and (b) the angle .
