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?

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...
