Problem 32P

Jim’s dog Sparky runs 50 m northeast to a tree, then 70 m west to a second tree, and finally 20 m south to a third tree.

a. Draw a picture and establish a coordinate system.

b. Calculate Sparky’s net displacement in component form.

c. Calculate Sparky’s net displacement as a magnitude and an angle.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 32P

Step 1 of 6
