1. Emily passes a soccer ball 9.7 m directly
across the field to Kara, who then kicks the
ball 11.7 m directly down the field to Luisa.
What is the magnitude of the ball’s total
displacement as it travels between Emily and
Luisa?

Howmany degrees to the side of straight down
the field is the ball’s total displacement?
