Problem 82P

A fence post is 52.0 m from where you are standing, in a direction 37.0° north of east. A second fence post is due south from you. What is the distance of the second post from you, if the distance between the two posts is 80.0 m?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 82P Let us have a look at the following figure. Let the other fence post is at B. We have to find the distance OB or y . Let us now calculate the x and y components of the displacement vectors. 0 The x-component of OA = 52.0 m × cos 37 = 41.53 m 0 The y-component of OA= 52.0 m × sin 37 = 31.30 m Let us now calculate the x and y components of the OB . The x-component...
