Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 78P STEP 1: The graphical representation for the problem is given below. Here the initial displacement was 285 km towards north-west. Finally the sailor should reach 115 km towards east from his starting position. So, the vector OA = 285 and vector OB=115. 0 As, the angle made by vector OA with the horizontal axis is 40 , 0 0 0 The angle AOB is equal to 180 40 =...
