A man pushing a mop across a floor causes the map to undergo two displacements. The first has a magnitude of 200 cm and makes an angle of 120° with the positive x axis. The resultant displacement has a magnitude of 240 cm and is directed at an angle of 60.0° to the positive x axis. Find the magnitude and direction of the second displacement.
