Physics

A car travels east at 82 km/h for 1.5 h. It then travels 30.0° east of north at 113 km/h for 1.6 h.
What is the average velocity for the trip? (Magnitude and Direction)

asked by A
  1. You have to find the vector displacement (by finding the position vectors then adding them)

    then
    avgvelocity=displacement/time
