Peggy drives from Cornwall to Atkins Glen in 35 min. Cornwall is 73.4 km from Illium in a direction 24° west of south. Atkins Glen is 25.1 km from Illium in a direction 13° south of west. Use Illium as your origin.
(a) Draw the initial and final position vectors. (Do this on paper. Your instructor may ask you to turn in this work.)

(b) Find the displacement during the trip.
magnitude_________km
direction_________° north of east

(c) Find Peggy's average velocity for the trip.
magnitude_________km/h
direction_________° north of east

I am so lost on this problem...I don't even know where to begin

  1. You are going to have to do it on graph paper.

  2. I have it graphed out, and I got the displacement in km, but I can't quite get the direction and the average velocity
