Problem 16PE

Problem 16PE

Solve the following problem using analytical techniques: Suppose you walk 18.0 m straight west and then 25.0 m straight north. How far are you from your starting point, and what is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (If you represent the two legs of the walk as vector displacements A and B , as in Figure 3.60, then this problem asks you to find their sum R = A + B .)

Note that you can also solve this graphically. Discuss why the analytical technique for solving this problem is potentially more accurate than the graphical technique.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solve the following problem using analytical techniques: Suppose you walk 18.0 m straight west and then 25.0 m straight north. How far are you from your starting point, and what is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (If you represent the two legs of the walk as vector displacements A and B , as in Figure 3.60, then this problem asks you to find their sum R = A + B .)

Solution

Step 1

A is the distance walked in the straight west direction and B is the distance walked straight north from the end point of A. The value of A is given as and the value of B is given as .The pictorial representation of the walk is given below.
