Problem 37P

Moving the Knight Two of the allowed chess moves for a knight are shown in Figure. (a) Is the magnitude of displacement 1 greater than, less than, or equal to the magnitude of displacement 2? Explain, (b) Find the magnitude and direction of the knight’s displacement for the of the two moves. Assume that the checkerboard squares are 3.5 cm on a side.

Step 1 of 5

Here we have to calculate and explain the magnitude of displacements for two allowed chess moves in case of knight. Also, we need to calculate the direction of displacement for two moves. Assuming the the square of the chessboard having the side of 3.5 cm.
